Newham Additional Provision

This report was commissioned by the London Borough of Newham 14-19 team and seeks to identify and describe the contribution made by alternative providers (APs) in Newham in preventing young people from disengaging with education and become ‘not in education, employment or training’ (NEET). Newham provide vocationally based education for Year 10 and Year 11 pupils in all its schools under the Newham Additional Provision (NAP) scheme. The study focuses on three APs which contribute to NAP, APE Media, which trains both young people and adults in music and radio technology, Pitstop which trains young people in car mechanics and Peacock Gym Academy which provides a range of vocational studies based in an East London boxing gym.
