GCSE Success for Endeavour’s Education Centre

celebration2016

Endeavour is pleased to report our GCSE pass rate at our Education Centre in Sheffield for 2015-16 is at 82%, with a number of students achieving A and A* grades. This is a fantastic achievement, especially considering some of the barriers our learners face and the fact that we are an alternative education provision.

29 learners at the Endeavour Education Centre entered GCSE examinations this year, an increase of 12 on last year. We wanted to build on last year’s success and be able to offer more learners the opportunity to take GCSEs this year, offering additional subjects in English Language, English Literature and History. This has enabled learners to experience a wider range of subjects and gain more qualifications.

Working in partnership with Sheffield City Council and local schools, our learners at the Education Centre are referred to Endeavour for a variety of reasons, but they are often children missing from mainstream education. This may be because they are new to the city or new to the country and some learners come to Endeavour with limited or no English. They may have fallen through the cracks in mainstream education, or be at risk of being expelled. Some learners have mild learning difficulties and others are teenage parents or young carers. Some of our learners are vulnerable and need that extra support that Endeavour provides, and a high level of wrap-around care.

Some learners come to the Education Centre with an attendance rate as low as 0-30% in mainstream education. With Endeavour, attendance rates average 78% and for them to overcome previous barriers and obtain these valuable qualifications with us is a huge leap forward.

Endeavour Curriculum Manager Hannah Shaw said: “The fact that our learners have managed to overcome these barriers and obtain these qualifications is an outstanding achievement. Their determination and resilience has enabled them to continue their education and work towards improving their future. We are extremely proud of all they have achieved this year and wish everyone the best of luck for the future”.

 
Sainsbury's The Moor Local Charity

Sainsbury’s Local Charity of the Year

We are delighted to have been chosen as the new local charity of the year for Sainsbury’s the Moor in Sheffield.

Each Sainsbury’s store across the UK chooses a shortlist of three local charities each year, which is then voted on by customers, staff and members of the public. Having been shortlisted in June, we recently received the call from Store Manager Claire Howard to tell us we had won the vote at the Moor.

We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us and help us spread the word. We are really looking forward to working with Sainsbury’s the Moor on a variety of employee engagement and fundraising events over the coming 12 months and we will keep you posted on our activities.
