Unaccompanied Minors


  • To provide guidance at a spiritual, moral and cultural level.
  • To intervene and help the development of the emotional intellect.
  • To intervene so as to raise self esteem, build on their confidence and encourage social integration.
  • To equip the young people with the life skills required to become positive citizens of the multi cultural society that we live in today.
  • To ensure that young people achieve the academic qualifications that will help them in their future careers.
  • To ensure that the young people have all the psychological help needed for them to be able to deal with the “trauma” that is associated with migration.

When a new young person arrives, their individual needs are assessed and an individual learning programme is set up for them. The courses that we offer range from literacy/numeracy to Level 2 qualifications in a number of subjects.

The course is split into lessons, during each lesson students will listen to English and learn how to say and spell words. Students learn about life in Britain and the culture. At the end of each lesson students will be able to practise writing and speaking the new English words that they have learnt.

The course modules includes: Comprehension and listening, Grammar, Vocabulary, Culture Phrases, Pronunciation, and Citizenship.

Blue River provides fully qualified teachers that speak a wide range of languages.
