INTRODUCTIONEducation is important in all aspects of life and childhood is considered to be the agewhere one is able to develop their learning, understanding and knowledge. The type ofperception that are carried outbyindividualsare differentfor children who are sick, people whoare excluded from community, etc. are not considered to be same as others (Atkins and Bartuska,2010). However, it is important that all children whoare involved in such conditionare providedwith adequate education so that they are able to develop their future or career. Main focus of theresearch is carried out on Pupil referral Unit which is type of local authority in UK. This isspecifically organised to deliver education to children who are sick, excluded or individuals whoare unable to attend mainstream at schools. The special maintained schools do not prefer studentswho fail to attend the classes’ regularly. There are different types of problems that are faced duetowhich individuals fail to attendand take leaves on frequent basis (Jasis and Marriott, 2010).These types of situations have negative impact over learning. For students who face suchproblems are get support from local authority like Pupil Referral Unit. In order to attain theresearch in effective manner, below given are the aim and objectives that are set:Aim:“To explore whether alternative educational provision puts their pupils on the path to success inadulthood.”Objectives:To investigate effectiveness of Pupil Referral Units as alternative education provision tothe young person’s needs.To determine the provisional outcome in terms of behaviour, attitudes, attainment andachievement.To identify alternative education provision inadvertently a barrier to future success.LITERATURE REVIEWThere is various typeofresearches that are carried out by other investigators on similartopic. This is helpful enough to develop knowledge and understanding about the current researchtopic.1
Effectiveness of Pupil Referral Units as alternative education provision to the young person’sneedsAccording to Ricard, Lerma and Heard, (2013) there are different types of issues that arefaced by individuals, when they are excluded from schools permanently. Below the age of 16,thisis a time in which child is not aware of what is right and what is wrong. In such situation,education plays vital role as it made them aware of stuff that they should perform. However, thisis not among children’s who are excluded permanently from schools. In such type of situationthe alternative education system is helpful enough to provided children’s proper guidance anddirection with the help of which they get to know regarding others. As per Booker and Mitchell,(2011), the type of friends or the groups that a child has also develops the behaviour. The type ofbehaviour who is alone, unwanted, etc. will be different from those who are accepted in thesociety. There is negative impact identified on emotional, behavioural basis that is faced bychildren’s. However, with the help of alternative education system, they provide these peoplewith support to live a healthy life in which they are educated and provided with all requiredmaterials that can be help them grow. At each of the stage of life that is person goes through,then they are required to develop their learning and understanding, when these do not happen,then it affects their growth (Reynolds, Temple and Robertson, 2011). For example, a child whois 3 years old will start walking, will start speaking some words. Similarly, in education, it isimportant that proper education is provided to each of the child as per their age. When these donot happen, then it has negative impact on behaviour. Hackam, Quinn and Dawes, (2013) statedthat basic need of person is to get education, it is their basic right but the type of policies that arefollowed in schools do not allow people who are not regular or fail to attend classes due tosickness or any other reason. With alternative education system, it is helpful for such individualsso that they get emotional support to grow and develop their knowledge in positive direction.There are different types of theories that are included. In this context, is includes Freud'sPsychosexual Developmental Theory. This is a type of theory that makes teachers to work withthe child and identify the issues that are faced by them. The theory states that childhoodexperience and unconscious desires influence behaviour. The conflicts that arise all the level ofchildhood have lifelong impact on behaviour and personality. For development of a child, thistheory is highly effective and enable to teachers to determine the areas in which improvementneeds to be made. All the problems faced by them are identified that steps are taken to overcome2
