Revive Learning Centre Launch Event
On the 10th December Invictus Revive Learning Centre, based at top church in Dudley was officially opened by Tony Bowles, CEO of Invictus education trust. Special guest speakers including Noel Simpson's from the 90s RNB band Damage and Nyran Scott a former alternative provision student played their part in opening the provision. The Mayor of Dudley enjoyed a tour of the facilities before the official ribbon cutting ceremony.
Head teachers, parents, carers, young people as well as senior staff from both schools and local authorities turned out in force to see what was on offer.
Chris Bennett, Director of Alternative Provision explained the vision to guests:
"Invictus Revive Learning Centre will be a place where students can strive to be more confident and become more resilient, a place where students can sit GCSEs and develop skills that are transferable to the workplace and a place where learning thrives. In short, a place where students strive, achieve and thrive".
The endeavour and protege curriculum blends business and enterprise with GCSEs and elements of the national curriculum with a focus on personal development. The vision is that those who refuse to attend a mainstream environment for variety of reasons can strive to feel more confident, to tackle the demands of school life, moreover, they are are happy, outward facing individuals.
There has been an overwhelming positive response following the launch and our Alternative Provision Team look forward to welcoming the first cohort of 15 young people across Key stages 3 and 4 in January 2022.
