Young people having the opportunity to be involved in new experiences to enhance their development is a key component of the House Project Programme. The programme is what young people ‘do’ after they have successfully secured their place on their Local House Project and is underpinned by the ORCHIDS framework.
The House Project Journey
Young people get access to a web-based programme where they can upload pictures, documents, videos, notes and reflections throughout their time on the House Project. This enables them to showcase their achievements and capture their journey as well as providing the opportunity for young people to find out what they are good at and build upon their existing strengths and interests.
What does it look like?
The House Project Programme consists of 13 sections that young people will work through with the support of House Project staff. Young people can choose how they wish to capture their journey throughout the programme; whilst some young people may favour notes and reflections, young people can also upload pictures, documents and videos.
As well as enhancing their development and preparing them for interdependence, young people who successfully complete each section of the programme will achieve accreditation under the AQA Unit Award Scheme (UAS) and receive certificates!
Young people accessing the House Project Programme are classified as being in Education, Training or Employment (ETE) as it serves as a springboard for young people not already in ETE to return to education, to gain more formal qualifications, or as proof of their skills and commitment to a future employee.
