RISE Learning Zone

Founded in September 2015, RISE is a new alternative education provider for Nottingham based in NGY MyPlace, the city’s flagship youth facility. RISE has been established to accommodate a small number of vulnerable learners on their education journey away from mainstream schools. Recognising that the best learning happens within a responsive and nurturing community, the organisation has a bold mission to provide learners with a unique experience in which mutuality, investment and ownership form the principle foundations of learner participation. From a whole-community education programme in which young people, staff, volunteers, families and other agencies can consider themselves co-learners and educators, to a not-for-profit co-operative governance which gives the learning constituency a genuine say in the direction of the organisation through membership, we aim to build a unique and empowering environment for learning.

We recognise that all individuals, of any age, should have the opportunity both to learn and to teach.
