Think for the Future – Behaviour & Resilience Mentoring Provision

“Think for the Future provide schools with a fully-managed Behaviour & Resilience Mentoring Provision that is run in-school with a real focus on outcomes and tracking impact. Behavioural data from our 50+ partner schools last academic year showed that:

  • 72% of students that we worked with reduced their negative behaviour points by more than half (-52% average reduction)
  • 71% of students on the provision improved their school attendance by 10% (average increase)

We do everything behind the scenes to make sure the programme doesn’t use valuable staff time and capacity, including: Specialist Training and Recruitment, Staff sickness cover, SLT Impact Reports, Quality Assurance, Intensive line management and school support. We can currently offer schools a January 2021 start date for provision. For more details Nick Harding – Partnership Director, nick.harding@thinkforthefuture.co.uk.
