Kieran Harrison

Kieran was permanently excluded from school due to poor behaviour. The school enrolled him onto their own Foundation Learning Tier programme but this didn’t work out for him, and his poor behaviour continued.

Kieran admits to having an ‘attitude’ at school but said the Breeze programme run by TBG Learning has helped build his self-esteem.

“I was kicked out of school because of my attitude but here it was a much calmer environment. It was just much quieter and helped me to work.

“I am going onto a new course and TBG has given me the confidence to be able to do that and do my work. Hopefully it will mean I can get my grades at GCSE.”

Kieran has made many new friends on the programme and being the oldest member of his group, became like a big brother figure to the other young people. He helped them to identify their barriers and how to overcome them; he became like a role model to them.

Kieran’s mother said he was like a different person at home as well as in centre; he would get himself out of bed in the morning as he was excited to attend the programme, and help out a lot more at home.

Kieran has now finished the BREEZE programme and is looking at completing an apprenticeship in the future – as he would like to start earning his own money and build up his qualifications.

I was kicked out of school because of my attitude but here it was a much calmer environment. It was just much quieter and helped me to work.

I’m going onto a new course and TBG has given me the confidence to be able to do that and do my work. Hopefully it will mean I can get my grades at GCSE.
