Driver Youth Trust: the first ten years

Driver Youth Trust is delighted to present ‘Driver Youth Trust: the first ten years‘, a special, commemorative book celebrating the work and successes of DYT over the past ten years.

Driver Youth Trust was created in 2009 by one couple who understood on a personal level the challenges faced by children with literacy difficulties. Sarah and Mark Driver founded DYT to ensure every young person in the UK receives an education which is responsive to their literacy needs.

Ten years later, and with over 10,000 teachers trained, DYT has matured from a grant-giving fund to a national charity that develops programmes, conducts research, supports schools and influences policy.

To celebrate this extraordinary milestone, DYT has commissioned a book to chart the breadth of work over a decade to transform provision of learners with literacy difficulties up and down the country. This is DYT’s story.

What comes next?

While DYT’s vision has remained much the same as it was ten years ago: to improve the life chances of young people with literacy difficulties, the book recommits the charity to a new set of goals for the next ten years.

DYT has identified a three step plan to achieve good literacy practice in every school.

1) To see more teachers trained in inclusive practice

2) Bring talk of literacy difficulties into mainstream conversations

3) Unify educationalists from across the ideological spectrum around how best to support children and young people with literacy difficulties
