We offer different packages and levels of support for young people who are underachieving, at risk of exclusion, involved in anti-social behaviour or need additional one to one support.
We aim to provide young people with the opportunity to develop a positive self-image, build positive relationships and move into making positive contributions in the community.
Our one to one keyworking sessions are conducted over one to twelve sessions. We follow the Assessment Planning Implementation and Review, (APIR), model and evidence our work through reports, either monthly or at the end of the fixed period of one to one keyworking.
The content of all Mentivation's programmes are developed in partnership with the client. The delivery of each programme is supported through a partnership working between our staff and the commissioning service.
We adopt a tried and tested multi-agency approach to our work, drawing together expertise from professionals such as:
• Educational psychologists
• Behaviour support teams
• Emotional health and wellbeing consultants
• Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)
Our programmes can support and strengthen good educational practice, as well as support and complement the work that schools are already undertaking to address poor behaviour and low or no educational attainment.
