The Centre offers a range of Skills classes for 15 -20 year old students.  These are students who are unable, for a variety of reasons, to continue with their education after Grade 9.

Our aim is to give these students basic skills which they can then use to obtain employment within the community.  The range at the moment is small, as we do not have the facilities or staff to expand.

GETS is maintaining the classes, Sewing, Cooking, Tie and Dye, English and Maths, which were run at the Centre prior to our takeover.  We have now added Life Skills, using a textbook called “Healthy Relationships for a Better Future” which is produced by UNICEF together with The Gambia National Youth Council.

We are investigating the registration of the Centre with the National Training Association so that we can provide officially recognised qualifications for our students - similar to NVQ in the UK.

Students asked if we could help them to find work experience as part of their courses.  This has been done for the cookery and sewing classes and all Year 3 students undertake work experience at restaurants, hotels and dress-makers in the Senegambia region. Many of our students are offered permanent employment as a result of these work placements. In addition, we have also employed three of our graduating students as assistants to help the teachers in our nursery and lower basic and skills classrooms.

A Bantaba has being built to give the students a shady area to work away from the classrooms.  This has been generously funded by a GETS member.  If you would like to help support the Skills students, please contact us for details.
