Challenger Troop

This is an organisation which delivers educationally accredited uniformed engagement programmes for vulnerable and disengaged young people. It aims to:

Provide positive aspirations and belief in their own potential and motivation to re-connect with their learning and improve attendance at school

Improve the quality of engagement in the classroom by raising confidence and self-esteem

Build resilience and coping strategies to deal with negative pressures and influences

Address and correct poor behaviours and attitudes

Develop citizenship (social conscience, social responsibility)

 
The Panel has promoted this programme in some local schools and has set up courses in the community in selected estates which is a developing aspect of work for which the Panel is keen to support.
