Young people based at Hopefields Alternative Provision take part in The Montana Project as standard, twice a week. This involvement informs their NCFE accredited qualifications and provides a therapeutic and holistic learning experience.
The Montana Project for young people at risk of NEET is a six week intensive course, with three days a week spent in centre. The focus is providing work related and transferable skills, with Literacy and Numeracy included as standard. Learners complete an accredited course, NCFE E3 to L1, depending on need, and have interview practice, CV writing skills and partake in meaningful work experience with local employers.
Holiday and weekend clubs are available for children and young people, based on horse care and management and improving social skills. Lots of fun, laughs and team work alongside an academy learning certification program. Suitable for all ages and experiences.
Camps and clinics for adults are available throughout the season, with guest speakers and motivational discussion. Owners can bring their own horses and learn from Ali's amazing and inspirational techniques, whilst building a lifelong bond with their animals. Check the website for dates throughout the year.
Horses can come to us at The Montana Project for training, remedial work or focused intervention. Ali works with humans and their horses to obtain a better balance in the relationship, ironing out issues or behavioural problems.
The Montana Project can tailor packages for companies in both the private and public sector, focusing on teamwork and communication skills.
