Geographical remit: 


The success of our learners is at the heart of everything we do.

We are adaptable and consistent in creating opportunities for vocational training that are current and accessible for all learners. We believe that good education is not a 'one size fits all' process so we offer choices to young people who may not feel motivated by a mainstream academic approach.

Motive8 recognises the benefits of working with young people in a holistic way, providing them with opportunities to grow and develop in an environment that suits their needs. We therefore offer a bespoke programme of education, skills development, and support to help young people succeed in their next steps – whatever those might be.

We create a personal relationship with them throughout their time with us, working with them and alongside them as they progress towards a qualification in their chosen field. Here at Motive8, young people feel safe, supported and respected; we know this because that's what they tell us!

We work in partnership with parents, carers, schools and other providers of specialist support to help our learners progress. We are committed to the highest levels of quality assurance and monitoring and, as part of that, we work closely with our partners, as well as parents and guardians, and welcome both contact with them, and invite visits to our training centre


Our social mission is to support young learners in finding their own place in life, creating paths for their future. We are committed to achieve this by:

Learning and education isn’t a one-size-fits all solution and this is why so many young people disengage with it. There is more than one way to live a fulfilling and successful life. Motive8 gives young learners options for their future beyond those provided by mainstream education.

We understand that many of the young learners that will engage with Motive8 might have already experienced significant challenges in their lives – maybe because of difficult early years and home life or because of evident or hidden disabilities. This is why we identify and place each young person’s aspirations firmly at the centre of their learning; helping them to understand their place in their community, and the valuable contribution they can make within it.

Motive8 is committed to young learners finding positive opportunities for their future.

We are based in South Bradford, but our services are open to all young people who feel they can find a place here, recognise the benefits we can offer to them.

  • Looking beyond mainstream education
  • Understanding
  • Enabling
  • Serving the Community

Motive8 is a charity, regulated by the Charity Commission, and committed to the service of others.

Here at Motive8 we are passionate about supporting young people to enhance their life opportunities by providing them with qualification options, optimising their employability and thus their future health and welfare. It is not about them learning a trade so much as learning the essential personal and professional skills needed to assist them to make progress in their future life.
