We recruit post graduates with from art and design and music who all have an assessment of dyslexia and or dyspraxia. We then send them into one of our 5 partner schools where they work alongside the existing staff and provide additional help to struggling students. They also run lunch-time or afterschool clubs targeting students with SpLDs.
We liaise carefully with the management and arts departments of our partner schools, making all the necessary arrangements for Creative Mentors to work successfully alongside teachers and support staff.
We visit our partner schools to record and document our work, gathering feedback from staff, pupils and Creative Mentors to learn what works well and how we can make it work better.
We also encourage applications from past mentors for one-off projects aimed at increasing self confidence and enthusiasm for students with SpLDs.
