Cork life Centre is a voluntary organization offering an alternative learning environment to marginalized young people.
The Centre and its staff offer students 1:1 tuition in Junior and Leaving Cert subjects and support them in their preparation for these State Exams. The approach to education is a holistic one. The value is in the social education of young people as much as on the academic. The Centre provides students and teachers with:
– An open and friendly environment.
– Positive trusting relationships with peers and staff.
– Continuous support with issues and challenges a student might face during work
With The Centre, many young 12-18-year-old early school leavers have achieved formal school certification. The success of the project is the mix of nurturance, individual programs, educational certification, stimulation, fun, hard work, mutual respect, and expectations.
The Cork Life Centre is an educational service catering for children between the ages of 12-18 years who for various reasons have not thrived or coped in a mainstream educational setting. The Centre and its staff offer students 1:1 tuition in the core Junior and Leaving Certificate subjects and supports them in preparation for State Examinations. The Centre is not officially recognized as an alternative educational setting by the government and therefore is minimally funded.
