The Driver Youth Trust Difference

Our vision is for every young person in the UK to receive an education which is responsive to their literacy needs. But, at DYT we know that there is no simple solution for raising standards in literacy. Schools are unique, complex and different, constantly evolving and responding to an ever more complicated political landscape.

That’s why, at DYT, we believe that each school requires a nuanced understanding of it’s learners to be able to improve their literacy. Instead of offering stand-alone interventions, or ad hoc CPD, we work with leadership, we look at systems and we approach solutions with an eye for sustainability, ensuring that inclusive literacy practices can be embedded within the school structure.

Evidenced Based Practice

DYT has taken steps to incorporate learning and practice from psychology to improve on what we provide to our partner schools.

We have utilised the concept of Evidenced Based Practice to ensure that our decision making is based on multiple sources, critical thinking and the ‘best available’ evidence.

Our Approach

Our collaborative, teacher-centric approach is at the heart of our belief that improvements do not come through short-term solutions, but through sustainable, systemic change.

Every school runs differently and is characterised by its staff, students and structure. Our approach reflects this, which is why our work will always be tailormade to each educational setting. The DYT team draws on a broad range of expertise, bringing together professionals from a wide range of fields. This diversity gives us additional in-sights into education that we would not otherwise have.

Our consultants are able to look at the structures and practice within a school and can reflect on evidence and work with teachers on how we to find solutions together.
