Driver Youth Trust

Partnership with The Driver Youth Trust

The Driver Youth Trust is a national charity dedicated to improving the life chances of children and young people, with a focus on those with literacy difficulties and who may have SEND, particularly children with dyslexia. They focus our resources on specific areas where we believe we can make a sizeable and sustainable difference with a view to creating systemic change in how young people who face literacy difficulties are supported in education.

Drive for Literacy is iterative and relational. Iterative professional development and learning emphasises a step-by-step process which includes feedback delivered by experienced specialist teachers. Feedback, delivered in the form of observations and modelling practice enables teaching staff to continually refine professional learning based on experience. The programme's relational nature emphasises the importance of a school's context within its local community, how that school engages with stakeholders (such as parents), the organisational and professional networks it is part of and the nature and operation of the school's leadership.


The model seeks to create coherency within schools, under six standards, of the literacy provision for SEND pupils. Coherency, over consistency, to the model will help ensure DfL is responsive to the needs of schools in an evolving political landscape.

An embedded culture with an ambitious vision of high expectations for what all learners can achieve and ensures high standards of provision, starting with Quality First Teaching.

Leadership with a relentless focus on outcomes and impact for children with SEND that publishes information about the effectiveness of their provision.

Collaborations with professionals, including specialists, and local networks, which are used to drive school improvement and enhance the experience of learners.
