Your Pathway to a Better Future

Work with us...

All schools, academies, pupil referral units and colleges can refer young people for a part-time placement. All placements are underpinned by a Service Level Agreement outlining the responsibilities of all partners prior to delivery of the programme.


Our "Step Up" intervention placements are designed to be pre-exclusion interventions, supporting the Lincolnshire Ladder of Intervention.


All new referrals are invited for an initial visit with their parent/carer and a representative from their main education base. If this is successful, a bespoke placement can be agreed. Regular reviews take place between all parties to support the reintegration back into the school environment.
