PLUS Strategy launches in the North East

Skills for Life Network

Wednesday 9th March saw the successful launch of the PLUS Strategy in Tyne and Wear in the imposing surroundings of the Sage Gateshead

The PLUS Strategy aims to raise significantly the literacy and numeracy levels of children and young people in order to prevent crime through:

  • attracting young people aged 14 to 19, specifically those with poor basic skills, back into learning programmes that will help them improve those skills
  • encouraging flexible, tailored approaches that motivate and engage young people and help raise their attainment
  • finding additional, innovative ways of engaging with these young people
