Our managers will always carry out a home visit prior to setting up any educational provision. We always discuss the learner’s needs with them and their family to ensure we fully understand what is needed.
Education can take place in the learner’s home, our own outreach centre or in any public setting where the learner will feel safe, secure and comfortable.
We carry out a full assessment to devise a customised timetable, focused on building on the learner’s strengths and areas of interest whilst methodically tackling their challenges and gaps in learning.
Our curriculum is designed to cover both academic needs and life skills. We often commence our teaching using a hidden curriculum which helps to build strong relationships between staff and the learner. We believe that this is key to a successful teaching relationship. We aim to build their confidence and self-esteem and to provide accredited courses wherever possible.
As much as we enjoy building a relationship with our students and guiding them through their education, we are aware that our aim for most students is to eventually transition them back into formal education. In order to transition our learners and young people on to a setting where they can continue their educational journey, our staff will accompany them on visits and help them to familiarise with a new setting prior to them leaving our care. In most cases our staff will also attend their new provision with them to begin with in order to make a smooth transition
