Trim Quality Centre

Centre Overview

Youthreach Trim was declared as ‘Ireland’s First Quality Centre of Education’ in March 2010.  A Dr. William Glasser Quality Centre of Education is a learning environment which has adopted an educational philosophy and practice based on Choice Theory. Choice Theory operates under the belief that methods based on coercion (or “external control”) do not work and are in fact incompatible with procedures that do lead to real educational change and personal growth.

Youthreach Trim applies the educational philosophy that it is impossible to control another human being and in order to influence people, a satisfying relationship with them needs to be created. In a ‘Quality’ school people grow best in a needs-satisfying environment and this has major implications both for the relationships in the centre and for the quality of the work that students engage in and produce.

We seek to provide, through LMETB and the criteria of William Glasser Quality School Model.

‘An Inclusive, non-coercive, challenging, innovative and dynamic student-centred service, which allows our young people to gain recognised qualifications while promoting a pattern of lifelong learning.’
