The Write Time has quickly established itself as a leading specialist mentoring and education organisation working with vulnerable people of all ages to ensure each person referred to our services achieves their full potential in both an educational and personal sense, with the use of Choice Theory. The Write Time has multiple facets to the business; a small independent school arm (max. capacity of 32 students) that was recently commended by Ofsted for its quality of provision for the wellbeing of young people; a Traineeship programme for young people aged 16-24, helping them to get into education, employment or training; and a Women’s project helping the long-term unemployed and economically inactive BAME women in South London with a plethora of initiatives. In the past, we have worked with over 750 students across 12 schools in 7 boroughs, and currently The Write Time is now exploring offering tuition services; a stronger family support network; and additional support for young people being excluded from mainstream environments.
