In response to feedback from schools and young people our Peer Assisted Learning Sessions (PALS) are a versatile way of working on personal development goals. They link very much into the PSE elements of the National curriculum.
The sessions are normally half a day and for groups of up to 6 young people. They can be used as a progression pathway for learners who have been on a 1-1 programme or they can be a stand alone offer for young people who need additional support in building confidence and self-esteem in a supported way.
Some schools use them as a roll on / roll off provision whereby different young people have the opportunity to attend each half term.
The sessions focus on positive communication, team-working, understanding how our behaviour impacts others, dealing with confidence and preparing for change.
Groups are formed throughout the year so there are no fixed entry or exit points, making it a really flexible option for schools to access for young people. This can really help school to retain a learner before more serious sanctions are imposed, such as partial or total exclusion.
