Thrive & Learn

Tuition and wellbeing services for young people on the Isle of Wight

About Us

Becky Ludlow

Thrive & Learn services are provided by Becky Ludlow.  

I have worked with children and young people since 2005.  During this time, I have taught a range of subjects in primary schools, middle schools, secondary schools and a post 16 setting. I have held leadership roles in schools, which has broadened my knowledge of curriculum planning and management.   

I have also worked for the Isle of Wight Council as an SEN Casework Officer and as a Social Care Education Professional, which has allowed me to focus on working with children who require additional learning support or wellbeing support.  

I have also been a Children's Advocate, which has entailed supporting young people to make sure that their views, wishes and feelings are expressed to the people who can make a difference in their lives.

I have then gone on to study counselling skills, neuro linguistic programming (NLP) and hypnotherapy as methods to support the emotional wellbeing of young people. I also participate in emotional literacy support (ELSA) training and supervision sessions with the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Educational Psychology Service.

I enjoy working with young people of all ages and am passionate about helping them to thrive and learn!

My qualifications include:

  • BA (Hons) English and Early Childhood Studies
  • PGCE Secondary English
  • Advanced Award in SEN Casework
  • Certificate in Advocating for children and young people
  • Diploma in NLP
  • Certificate in Hypnotherapy & Counselling Skills
  • ELSA training

I also keep the following updated on an ongoing basis:
