Case Study: Naomi's Transformative Journey with Targeted Provision
I embarked on a new chapter in my career with Targeted Provision after an extensive tenure in mainstream education. I had reached a point where I felt disillusioned with a system that I believed didn't always provide adequate support to both teachers and young people.
Throughout my career, I have consistently worked with children and families facing various challenges. What mattered most to me was the opportunity to continue making a significant difference in the lives of society's most vulnerable young people. I knew that my passion lay in helping these children, and tutoring became the avenue through which I could continue my impactful journey.
For me, tutoring was more than just a means of 'educating.' It was a role that allowed me to wear many hats: tutor, mentor, and a source of unwavering support for young people and families navigating through incredibly tough situations.
Targeted Provision offered me a unique platform to work with an exceptionally high level of trust. I was empowered to utilise my professional judgement to assist my young person in making progress, ensuring a tailored and effective approach. While some days presented their own set of challenges, the most rewarding aspect for me was witnessing my young person’s growth and development in numerous facets of life.
One of the joys of being a tutor with Targeted Provision was the freedom to adapt sessions and create a curriculum that was not only educational but also engaging and enjoyable for my young person. This personalised approach made the learning experience enriching and meaningful.
Crucially, I felt supported at every step of my journey. The Targeted Provision support team was a constant source of guidance, encouragement, and assistance. They made me feel valued and respected, creating a collaborative atmosphere where my efforts were recognised and celebrated.
For me, my time as a tutor with Targeted Provision has been transformative. I have a career that allows me to channel my passion into making a real impact in the lives of vulnerable young people and their families. Through trust, professional judgement, and unwavering support, I not only educated but also nurtured growth, resilience, and hope!
Naomi's story is a testament to the power of building strong trusting relationships - for tutors and young people alike. It showcases how, with the right support and trust, tutors can be mentors, advocates, and powerful role models for young people facing challenges in their educational journey.
