What young people say about the programme:

It’s not like school as the teaching was not strict and everyone could work at their own pace.”

Emily, Medway Programme graduate

What we have to do in each session is clearly explained. Each session is always made to be fun and if we have any problems the tutors are always quick to help us either as a group or on a one to one basis.”
