Informal Education underpins therapeutic response at LifetrainUK we recognise that young people need to build resilience and a range of life-skills that will promote independence at 18. Within the therapeutic response the Youth Work Curriculum underpins interventions. It focuses on 5 core curriculum areas. They cover the major issues that young people face in their transition from childhood to adulthood.

Participation and inclusion.

Creativity and challenge

Equality and diversity.

Health and wellbeing.

Personal and social development.


We use an assortment of approaches

including drama, music, outdoor education,

teambuilding exercises and art. Using these

methods has proved invaluable in reactivating young

people who have switched off from the formal

learning environment.
