    Has anyone used this charity and had students pursue it's awards programs previously?

    Thinking it might be useful and what they offer seems a good 'alternative' program for certain identified students but would like to hear from folk who've had experience.

    Yes. We use Skillforce and it is an effective alternative program. Most of the pupils achieve the equivalent of two GCSEs with some achieving the equivalent of three. Very few fail to reach the standard. The personnel are firm but fair and engender a good culture of mutual respect.

    I don't know your setting…. but has this resolved/ had a major impact on the issue of students leaving with zero exit qualifications??
