Attachment Based Mentoring

A relational approach to learning, development and well-being.

It is widely recognized that vulnerable children struggle to access learning and experience success at school. With interventions purely designed to move them on with learning, they often have difficulty engaging and making progress.

Perhaps something else is needed?

Attachment based mentoring is a relational, child centred and holistic approach to supporting our most vulnerable children.

Drawing on theories and research from the fields of attachment, coaching and resilience, it is a comprehensive practical guide as to what to do and how to be to ensure that the individual needs of each child are met.

The approach aims to enable children to feel safe, connected, and capable – forming positive relationships and enjoying learning.
