This programme is a joint venture between Work Skills South West, Transferable Skills Training and Batting On, set up to re-engage vulnerable young people who have disengaged from education. Each organisation brings a different set of expertise, knowledge and skills to the programme, working collaboratively to produce this award-winning programme. Together We Can Succeed has gained widespread acclaim and was filmed by the BBC for Comic Relief 2015.
Battling On uses the expertise and experience of veterans to help young people tackle the barriers which have prevented them from engaging in education, developing emotional resilience, coping strategies and self confidence.
