2. Improving Attendance: Academic & Pupil Mentors

Consistent school attendance is crucial for learning and a young person’s well-being and development.

Our Academic and Pupil Mentors, experienced in addressing attendance barriers, support pupils on a part or full-time basis. They work one-to-one, in small groups, or with those at risk of exclusion.

Mentors receive on-the-job training in the Thrive Development Model to understand social and emotional development and to promote behaviours that encourage regular school attendance and engagement in learning.

Academic and pupil mentors offer:

  • A dedicated resource to support your school to improve attendance rates
  • A resource for use across your school network e.g., in a Multi Academy Trust
  • Specialist SEND and intervention experience


3. Growing Your Own: Future Teachers Programme

Recruiting and retaining teaching staff is becoming more complex. The number of people entering the profession is decreasing, while the number of teachers leaving has increased.

Teaching Personnel’s Future Teachers Programme helps schools take control of their long-term teacher recruitment strategy and reverse this trend.

With the Future Teachers Programme your school can:

  • Build a reliable team of cover supervisors: who are committed and understand the needs of your school
  • Save on costs: No need to hire multiple supply staff
  • Strengthen your recruitment strategy: Secure a source of experienced graduates to go on to ITT
