Daytime and After School Sessions

The GASP Motor Project provides daytime and after school sessions in basic motor mechanics and practical engineering skills for young people aged between 14 and 19 years who are disaffected, disadvantaged and under-achieving, and those with special educational needs. We also provide sessions for young people who are homeless and unemployed. 

The sessions provide an alternative learning facility for at risk and marginalised young people in conjunction with their education learning provider.  We work in partnership with statutory and voluntary organisations including Special Educational Needs Schools (SENs), pupil referral units and other organisations that support disengaged and disadvantaged young people.

We provide a safe and supervised professional environment with sessions run by qualified mechanics and programmes designed to meet the needs of young people. They work in small groups, learn the benefits of teamwork and improved skill sets and this all helps in tackling anti-social and offending behaviours.  

This accredited learning facility helps these young people achieve and contribute more than anyone thought possible.

These sessions can also be delivered to your door; depending on your facilities we can provide a mobile facility that mirrors the session provision at our workshop.  

We discuss your requirements and design the GASP Motor Project sessions to meet the needs of the young people with whom you work. We work towards the outcomes that you identify and discuss with the GASP Workshop Manager.  

Your own support workers will need to accompany your students, to manage social and behavioural issues. Our instructors will provide an environment that builds the ability to resist peer pressure, opportunities to work towards a nationally recognised accreditation (AQA), skills that improve young people’s confidence and self esteem, and a possible route to access further education, training and employment.
