Our mentoring programme builds confidence and self-esteem while addressing issues associated with anger and difficult behaviour. The programme aims to integrate pupils into school routine while recognising - and realising - potential.

The programme can be tailored to target a diverse range of pupils. Whether taking part in sporting activities within a team or addressing personal development needs on a one-to-one basis, On Track can help pupils re-engage and adapt to mainstream curriculums.

Alternative education programmes

On Track alternative education programmes address various types of serious behavioural problems.

Our trained coaches, instructors and mentors have developed strategies to deal with many of the complex issues which pupils can encounter - including bullying, low self-esteem and aggression.

The On Track team can deliver nationally-recognised courses through ASDAN and Sports Leaders UK, and has also devised its own alternative education programme - Activ8.

Activ8 can be delivered to small groups of up to ten pupils over a variety of timescales, working through issues which emerge during each session while developing the pupils' skills and confidence to overcome each challenge.

All On Track alternative education programmes, designed for pupils from eight-years-old upwards, aim to support pupils in making the transition back into mainstream education.
