Education and Learning

Nether Johnstone House is committed to a participative approach to all aspects of learning and development for our children and young people.

With staff trained to delivery Dynamic Youth Awards, on-site, our children and young people are able to engage in a variety of learning to promote their social and emotional wellbeing, at the same time as learning and enhancing new and existing qualities and skills. Using a social pedagogical approach to our learning we encourage our young people to make use of the environment and relationships around them to learn and grow. Building knowledge around about their rights and responsibilities, encouraging curiosity and participation are all key skills we seek to achieve. Our children and young people have become skilled craftsmen; building their own furniture for the house, developing their culinary skills and becoming active fundraisers for charities close to their hearts.

Nether Johnstone House can provide a specialist education programme in partnership with local education providers that tailor education packages to suit individual needs. Our engagement with local education providers allows us to provide a multidisciplinary approach to integrating education, care, and therapy programmes. These tailored curriculums and a combination of therapies are designed to ensure that young people are able to develop a broad range of academic and social skills to enable them to participate within society and develop the psychological independence as they progress.

Nether Johnstone House is strongly committed to a holistic approach to education and celebrating success to ensure that all of our young people develop a positive outlook on life – that they thrive and learn to take responsibility, not only by actively engaging in appropriate and stimulating learning opportunities but also by achieving an enhanced degree of emotional stability.

We work with education providers to support our young people with general education and pre-vocational training particularly for young people with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties as well as a range of learning and developmental difficulties. The curriculum is aimed at young people who have previously had problems in school, due to behavioural and/or academic problems, where their education may have been disrupted by periods of exclusion and/or other factors.
