At Targeted Provision, we have spearheaded a step-change for vulnerable learners in England. In the face of growing challenges in the UK's education sector - such as a shortage of appropriate school places, a lack of available professionals, and a marked increase in young people missing education due to unmet SEMH needs - we saw a pressing need for transformation in Alternative Provision.
We provide a supportive, understanding, and tailored educational environment for young people facing adversity. We are led by the principles of trauma-informed practice and the profound impact trauma can have on a young person's ability to learn, grow, and engage with the world. Our approach considers these underlying vulnerabilities, providing a supportive educational environment tailored to address and alleviate them. We are here to help young people transition into needs-appropriate provision, empower them to take control of their educational journey, and support them in developing resilience and self-regulation skills.
Our tutors are qualified teachers, with extensive experience supporting young people with SEND. Every tutor is also paired with a SEND Specialist from our central Support Team, who oversees each lesson, offers strategies tailored to individual needs and consistently monitors and report the attendance and progress of each young person referred to us. Our Support Team are also available to participate in EHCP/PEP/Strategy meetings and collate evidence for EHCNA applications when needed.
We can also offer examination entries (including GCSEs, A-Levels and Functional Skills) and post-16 life-skills packages, equipping young people with practical skills vital for work, learning and life. Additionally, we deliver English as an Additional Language (EAL) support for unaccompanied asylum-seeking children (UASC), ensuring they feel seen, understood and supported in their educational journey. We also maintain out-of-county consistency, providing reliable support regardless of county barriers.
In brief, young people referred to TP receive much more than just tuition. They receive comprehensive support from trauma-informed professionals who take into account their individual circumstances, experiences, and emotional needs. This support empowers them with the confidence and emotional security needed to explore new learning opportunities and take positive steps in their educational journey.
We exist to meet the needs of young people and have no requirement for schools or Local Authorities to make a minimum number of referrals. We know that things can change last minute for a young person, and therefore will never ask for a minimum length for a referral either. We do, however, know that our support is most impactful when delivered over several hours in a week, so will prioritise supporting young people where requests are made for 2 or more hours per week.
Absolutely! We work with 150 Local Authority teams / 450 schools and would be delighted to put you in touch with some of our current partners. Please get in touch with us to arrange this.
We demand strict safeguarding at Targeted Provision, adopting a child-centred approach and promoting the welfare of every child and young person. This approach means keeping the child in focus when making decisions about their lives and working in partnership with them and their families. Anyone working for, or on behalf, of Targeted Provision will demonstrate relevant Safeguarding Training to Level 2 as a minimum. You can read our full Safeguarding Policy here.
