Web Wheel Model

NCGE has worked with Youthreach in the development of the Web Wheel Model.

A core element of the Web Wheel Model includes the use of mentoring techniques to develop and guide one-to-one relationships between students and staff. This process uses a specific profiling tool, the Wheel, to assess student needs, to structure and guide the mentoring conversations and to review and monitor progress. Information gathered during the profiling process feeds into the development of an Individual Action Plan. This Plan includes provision for in-centre supports (e.g. additional tuition) and inter-agency working and referral, where appropriate. The Web Wheel Model also makes provision for training of practitioners and support and supervision mechanisms.
See the Youthreach website for more information about this approach.
