Why does the Inclusion Trust exist?

Inclusion Trust exists to re-imagine how alternative approaches to education can help 'pushed out’ learners to grow, learn and achieve.

Pushed out

The trust has adopted the term ‘pushed out’ learners to provoke a debate amongst practitioners that will focus on the weaknesses in our education systems rather than the ‘abnormality’ of the individual child.

There is compelling evidence that exclusion patterns are disproportionately high for particular groups of young people such as those who experience poverty, have Special Educational Needs and attend poor schools.

Rather than accepting that almost half of young people fail to achieve a core set of good GCSEs , we must acknowledge that many do not have the access and opportunities they need.

By focusing on young people who have been pushed out of school, we have identified the root causes that lead them to enter the world of Alternative Education and how we might work in partnership with other practitioners to make the world of Alternative learning better.
