Iliffe Arts Alternative Education programmes consist of the LAFA Project for Looked After Fosterd & Adopted young people and the CACH Project for Children of African Caribbean Heritage. We focus on supporting these specific groups of vulnerable young people who are more likely to become disengaged, disaffected and be under-achieving to prevent them from being in internal isolation or becoming excluded and enable them to reach their full academic and life potential.
Iliffe Arts works with local schools, to run expressive arts based workshops to help children reach their full potential and re-engage with their education.
We teach kids about the importance of self-identity and self-image, our positive supportive environment will help children to overcome the problems they may be facing in school be it behavioural, low attendance/attainment or lack of motivation in their studies.
Each workshop will provide a chance for students to discover new talents and gain skills for future employment. Topics may include:
1. Creative, hands on visual presentation skills.
2. 3D and 2D visual arts and craft activities.
3. Group and peer bonding games/ team working skills.
4. Expressive dance, music and drama.
5. Studying and meeting positive role models.
6. Celebrating individual strengths and ways of learning.
7. Positive verbal, visual and physical body language/ communication skills.
