Course Title: KS3 Exclusions – 1:1 Provision - High impact - New Synolos pilot Programme
Course description: Synolos’ focused delivery works best alongside other alternative providers – diversifying the learner’s timetable and giving them a greater chance of success. We believe that for those who have been excluded from mainstream education, small, sure steps are most effective means of achieving learning success. The focus of our KS3 Exclusion programme is to create trust. We work with learners to develop the skills and resilience necessary to build relationships and to engage in further studies. Once a young person has established a trusting connection with staff, they will join a small group and engage in a vocational subject
