"Thanks for best year and half at college" Alex Kennedy - former student.
"Thanks for two years at the Garage Project. Out of all the stuff I learnt in the sixth form mechanics, you made it fun. I learned everything I had to know. I think you did a great job, you all changed the way I thought about learning, and I thought school wasnt going to work in the first few weeks, but it all changed. I stayed at school so I could go the Garage Project every week. I dont think I ever told you but I have been around jobs and other courses and the Garage Project is still top in my book. Thankyou". Daniel Webber - former student.

Case Study: Targeted Youth Support Worker
There was this one young person who was quite heavily involved in anti-social behavour and at severe risk of getting an Anti Social Behaviour Order. He'd been identified as a risk for an application to be made on one. He was at school but excluded from main-stream education, so he was in the pupil referral unit on a part-time timetable.
He was doing two and a half hours education a day, from about 0930 until 1200 which left him with the rest of the day and weekends and holidays where he had literally nothing to do, which again meant he went and got into trouble.
He's fourteen years old and we applied to Norrpro Training and got him onto one of the courses running in the evening, and he attended that and that then stretched into the school holidays as well. It was only two evenings per week, but it really meant that he met other people and became involved in the local youth services, so he was then occupied two or three evenings a week.
It made such a big difference and he's really dropped off the radar in terms of his behaviour and he's made real big improvements.
