Our Approach

Mentoring


Young people will receive fortnightly intensive 1:1 mentoring for 1 year whilst in mainstream education. Each person will receive a continuous source of guidance and support throughout their time on the programme. In addition to mentoring we offer other support for young people which may include group work such as Drug Awareness, Gang Prevention, Healthy Living, Careers Advice and Personal Development.

Individual Learning Plan


Our subjects, qualifications, and skills development education programmes are carefully selected and tailored to meet Special Educational Needs, as well as being designed to support, develop, and intrigue our students.

Choice Theory


At TWT, we’ve built our culture around Choice Theory to help our young people understand the choices that they make on a daily basis.

We provide an empowering method of counselling/problem solving based on Choice Theory, which is aimed at helping people gain more effective control over their lives. The theoretical base comes from “internal control” psychologies – ones that see behaviour as motivated from within rather than by external forces.

Secondary Skills

Employment

We work on the total development of individuals we work with.

Through qualifications, mentorship and guidance, 83% of our school leavers enter employment, education or training after completing one of our education programmes.

Accreditation

At The Write Time, we offer several first step accredited courses and GCSE qualifications with an aim for each of our young students to achieve at least one qualification in an academic year. We offer the following GCSE qualification courses: English Literature, Language, Maths, Science, Functional Skills (Entry Level 1 up to Level 2), Princes Trust Achieve, Arts Award, Digital Skills, Health, Social Care.

Sports & Recreation

It boosts the physical, psychological and social wellbeing of the pupils. Sports participation is used to increase engagement, attendance and retention. They develop positive values such as teamwork, respect, discipline and resilience.

Independent Living Skills

TWT works towards personal and social development of the individual to build on their self-sufficiency, independence and individualism. It is important for us that all people we support are able to live, function and contribute positively to society. Our young people learn and develop life skills, such as cooking, budgeting, the importance of a healthy diet, and self-care. These skills are crucial to their mental health and physical well-being.

Case Study

In 2011 I was diagnosed with a mental health condition called EUPD (Emotional Unstable Personality Disorder). I had tried to obtain work experience, however, due to my complex needs, did not have any luck. My confidence and self esteem was very low.

The Write Time has allowed me to grow as a teacher and use my skills to help others. My background is Law and Business Studies. I graduated in 2007.

I have now completed Teacher and Assessors courses which enables me to support learners reach personal goals. I have also completed the IAG course which enables me to support learners.

I hope to become a volunteer and continue to help those within my local community.

The staff at The Write Time are amazing people who have supported me to become a confident person.

They actively listen, are professional, organised and tactful in their approach. I am looking forward to continually volunteering at The Write Time to set and achieve goals.
