About

Square300-6An alternative education

RISE Learning Zone is a small education organisation with a passion for and commitment to learning for some of the most disadvantaged young people in Nottingham, with a unique approach. Building on a history of nurturing, wraparound support for young people, RISE aims to develop a whole learning community, recognising that all individuals, of any age, should have the opportunity both to learn and to teach. Today our small team of experienced professionals and volunteers are creating a programme responsive to the needs of young people, their families and the wider community, and imagining a learning environment where everyone is on a journey of self-discovery through education.

We are currently offering 12 places per day for Key Stage 4 learners, providing a full and varied curriculum including functional skills, life skills and creative subjects with qualifications from EL-2 to Level 2, depending on subject.
