About the project – Boys Development Programme
Future Men’s programme aims to address the behavioural causes of school exclusion in boys. It does it by helping them understand the relationship between emotions and behaviour, so that they can develop emotional awareness, self-awareness and self-control. Boys are referred into the programme by teachers, and they all have a one-to-one meeting with a member of project staff, to help identify they support they need. They then complete between six to twelve sessions, which could involve one-to-one sessions (for children who have the most significant needs) or group sessions.
About the funding round
Themed grant roundWe’ve come together with the Education Endowment Foundation to jointly fund a grant round to build evidence of what works to improve attendance and reduce exclusions.
