Forward With Direction is an NCEA level 2 programme that is tailor made to help young people develop both life skills and educationally. Based in pull apart theory, young people learn by doing real world tasks in order to understand application of their learning.

"This course will change the way you see life as it teaches you so much more stuff than school does and it actually makes sense!”





Kylah is our Family and Youth Coach at CYC Trust. She understands life doesn’t always go according to plan and it can be overwhelming at times – sometimes being able to talk to someone can really help make sense of a situation. She's committed to come alongside you, listen to you and support you to make a pathway forward to where you want to be.
