Most classes are in small groups, so that young people can receive an educational programme that is tailored to their individual needs. The delivery of courses is further enhanced by the Literacy and Numeracy Programme.
The young people have access to a range of facilities at the YES, including an Art Room, a Computer Room, a Commercial Training Kitchen and a Woodwork area. Health, fitness and well-being are promoted with a fully equipped Gym, Pool Room and Table Tennis area, accessible during recreation time. In addition to an enhanced learning experience, young people are provided with the opportunity to develop other life skills such as independent living with kitchen and laundry facilities available.
