Sheffield Inclusion Testimonial
Casey, 16, from Sheffield, has struggled to find her feet in mainstream education and completely stopped attending due to her confidence, low self-esteem and preferring her own company.
Sheffield Inclusion centre introduced Casey to EDLounge and after starting with the odd hour here and there, Casey begun using EDLounge once a week, for one hour in the morning and one hour in the afternoon.
“Since using EDLounge, Casey’s attitude towards learning certainly changed. She struggled in mainstream school and found it very difficult to interact with people she didn’t know.
“After a year of using EDLounge, she has now finished her exams and has been accepted onto an apprenticeship working in a private nursery,” said Casey's Guardian
Mrs T believes that it is ‘good and helpful’ that pupils can communicate with tutors when they’re on EDLounge.
She added that without the use of EDLounge, Casey would not have had the opportunity of an apprenticeship.
“EDLounge is a really good idea for likeminded students, similar to Casey, who don’t want go into mainstream school or the pupils who struggle to deal with the daily stresses of school.
“I would definitely recommend EDLounge to others as Casey is an example that it does really help,” she continued.
