Timeout Homes recognises that the educational needs of the child are fundamental to the success of the Therapeutic Treatment Plan as part of an integrated treatment programme; and that the contribution of the educational team, led by the Head of Education is essential to this success. The ability to learn and gain qualifications is key to a child’s accessibility to further and higher education and/or vocational training and skills.
Each child has a bespoke individual learning package created for them, that is focused on their academic needs and personal interests and aspirations. Bsquared and Hodder testing are used to enable us to baseline a child’s achievements and monitor and report on progress. Each child has a Boxhall profile completed after 6 weeks in education to enable us to clearly identify their barriers to learning and provide methods to address these.
