Taylored Mentoring Services – Positive support for young people in Gloucestershire
TMS is a mentoring service committed to helping make a change in the lives of young people in Gloucestershire. We can provide mentoring in both a group and a 1:1 environment. The majority of our young people are aged between 12 & 16 and have been permanently or partially excluded from school.
In Gloucestershire in 2016/17, there were 24 permanent exclusions and 654 fixed period exclusions in state-funded primary schools alone. In state-funded secondary schools, there were 107 permanent exclusions and 3,124 fixed period exclusions. – Gov.uk
The classroom environment is difficult. It is a complex social system full of change and challenges. At TMS we aim to provide an environment for young people to be able to talk about their feelings, opinions, situations and personal experiences. Throughout the week, our sessions are focused on improving social skills, communication and positive decisions within a group environment.
Our aim is to equip these young people with the skillset they need to succeed in life. We understand that everyone is different, it is that knowledge that allows us to ‘Taylor’ each experience to suit the individual’s needs.
