TLG supports children and young people who have been excluded from school or are at a crisis point in their education.

Founded 1998

  • Mission statement

    TLG exists to offer hope and a second chance to young people who have been excluded from school or are at risk of exclusion.

    TLG provide OFSTED-registered alternative education and behaviour coaching to those struggling to behavioural issues or in need of extra support.

    The children and young people we work with have often experienced issues such as bereavement, family breakdown, neglect, abuse and other distressing situations, often victims of circumstances beyond their control. We work through Education Centres and Early Intervention.

    Education Centres:
    Our aim is to work with each young person to enable them to:

    - Recognise their worth and potential as an individual: This is promoted through celebrating achievements, after-school mentoring, residentials and through our family support work.

    - Learn and achieve to the best of their ability through close support: We do this by committing to engaging 9 young people with 3 staff members per group. Young people complete qualifications and modules necessary to return to school or onto further education.

    - Integrate back into mainstream education or further learning: TLG currently has a 96% success rate in this.

    Early Intervention:
    Our Early Intrervention programme works in partnership with local churches and communities to provide one to one behavioural coaching in Primary schools.
