Engage in Education - Essex
16 November 2012
Catch22's Engage in Education programme offers schools and academies specialist services designed to increase the attendance and attainment of pupils most at risk of exclusion from school.
'Catch22 has been working in education for many years. The strength of our approach is that we not only improve the educational attainment of the young people we work with but also support their emotional and developmental growth. We know that the right interventions create a lifelong impact on young people facing challenges.'
Steph Taylor, Programme Manager
How we work
Through Catch22's existing strong partnerships with secondary schools and academies, Engage in Education will work to prevent exclusions by offering:
- one-to-one support from key workers and volunteer mentors
- accredited and non-accredited group work from the Pupil Parent Partnership (PPP) teachers
- family support
- community engagement through volunteering
workforce learning and development with specialist communication advisors from I CAN.
The referral process
Schools can refer pupils to Engage in Education through their local coordinator, see contact details above.
Our teams will have robust monitoring and reporting mechanisms in place, with a comprehensive evaluation being carried out to evidence the impact of our work with young people in schools and academies.
