FREE English, maths Website Design and employability lessons at AWE Waltham Abbey. For young people aged 15 to 18, living in Essex who are Home Educated.

There will be FREE Functional Skills English, Functional Skills maths, Customer Services, Certificate in Personal Development and Employability Skills as well as the opportunity to gain skills in the vocational subject of Website Design at AWE Waltham Abbey starting January 2018.
I have been able to form a partnership with EM Skills to enable AWE to run a 13-week rolling programme at the AWE Home Ed Club in Waltham Abbey. This opportunity gives young people the opportunity to gain qualifications and skills for free. The English and maths qualifications are tailored to suit each individual learning ability, level and style of learning.
At the end of the 13 weeks, each young person will have the opportunity to achieve recognised qualifications, which are recognised as being equivalent to a GCSE level 5.
These qualifications are recognised by colleges and employers and can be used to gain entry to subsequent courses or apprenticeships. They can use this as a standalone qualification or as a stepping stone to further their knowledge or to go on to GCSE/IGCSE study.
The young person will need to attend AWE Club Waltham Abbey every Monday, Tuesday and Friday for the full 13 weeks from 9.30 to 3/3.30pm.
Teachers are skilled specialists in supplying these qualifications with years of experience. This Fully Funded Free programme is open to all Home Educated young people age 15 to 18 and living in the Essex area, including those with special needs.
Laptops and resources will be provided for use in the classroom for the duration of the classes and programme. All exam fees are fully funded so no cost to parents at all.
Each young person will complete an assessment in English and maths at the start of the programme, this is for us to tailor a unique programme giving them the opportunity to work towards qualifications at their own personal level.
* Young person must be aged 15 to 18 years
* They must have an Essex postcode for delivery of documents and certificates
* You must commit to the full 13 weeks attending 3 days a week (Monday, Tuesday and Friday)
* There will be a fully refundable deposit to cover exam registrations and administration that will be returned to you when the young person has completed the course and volunteering
* All young people that participate must prove their progression or complete a minimum of a week’s volunteering role within four weeks of the end of the programme

The parents are friendly and support each other. Most stay for the day and have made long standing friendships as have the children. We always welcome new families.
I hope you have found my newsletter number 3 interesting or useful.
and why did you decide to Home Educate? The
decision to Home-educate was not a simple one for us. In truth, I had never really
considered homeschooling as an option for my family. However, as my eldest son
got nearer to the school-starting age, and as I learnt more about who he was
and his own beautiful personality, I realised that traditional schooling would
not be the best option for him. So we decided to “take the plunge” and withdraw
his application for primary school and home-educate him. I know from the bottom
of my heart that this was the right decision for him. In fact, he thrived and
has done so well at home that we decided to homeschool his younger sibling too! What
kind of approach do you take? We
are trying to follow a Charlotte Mason approach, but as many of you readers will realise, learning new education philosophies takes time…time that most
home educators do not have! As such, I am trying to educate myself on Miss
Mason’s approach and implement what I learn as I go …
Welcome to my blog! I'm Nicola! I home educate my children DD14, DS11, DS9, DS6 & DD3.
I wrote this guide a few years ago after many families began home educating and asking me many questions. I then set up this blog in January 2017 followed by my Instagram page theworldistheirclassroom
Firstly, just a quick note on how to get around my blog. The PC version is slightly different to the mobile version but they both have an icon of three small lines in the top left hand corner of the Home Page. (On the PC version this may be clicked automatically and therefore, show a side panel.) But if you click this, you should be able to easily find older posts in the archive as well as some labels which I have tagged onto posts in order to group similar ones together. There is a search bar at the top of the Home Page screen to quickly search for a particular word. Hope this makes it easier to find what you're looking for.
We are thrilled to be part of Mr Shaha's Recipes for Wonder Blog Tour with Scribble Kids Books today!
Written by science teacher and dad, Alom Shaha, and beautifully illustrated by Emily Robertson, this new, fun science book is packed with over 15 exciting experiments suitable for all ages and proves that 'Every child can be a scientist with the help of Mr Shaha and his recipes for wonder.'
When we first heard about this amazing book, which has just been released, we thought it would be a perfect addition to our Home Ed library! Being avid readers, books are the central part of our home and possessing easy to follow science experiments books like this, is great to get my inquisitive kiddies questioning the world around them and understanding that 'It's OK not to know the answers.'
It begins with an enchanting tale of Alom as a boy, who has just arrived from a Bangladeshi village and how a simple trip out with his mother to a local street market sparked an int…
