Who we are
50-50 SYNC CIC is a 'micro sized' social enterprise set up in 2011. We have a combined 30 years’ worth of experience working within various Local Authority (LA) children services and both primary and secondary mainstream and special school settings including PRU's.
What we do
We provide a targeted response with specific aims and objectives to address ‘pupil engagement’ issues at both ends of the scale; those children in school settings and those children missing in education. We provide skill-based interventions which cultivate ‘work ready mindsets’. We assess the needs of the child through six mechanisms of change which impact employability capabilities.
Why we do it
To support all children and young people to engage in education and develop employability skills to enhance their life outcomes.
When we do it
We operate throughout the year providing targeted interventions to children and young people during term time and school holidays.
How we do it
We provide LAB practitioner training combined with access to our 50-50 LAB system to underpin our interventions that are designed to engage children in education and provide them with employability skills. Our intervention work can be delivered either face-to-face or remotely through video conferencing and communication platforms.
50-50 LAB is designed to support teachers with their class, year groups and whole school through monitoring each pupils wellness, feelings, behaviour, relationships, attitudes, skills and abilities.

“My daughter has had an amazing time at 50-50 and this has already significantly reduced her frustration, boredom and anxiety. She has engaged incredibly well with the staff at 50-50 and for the first time in a long time, I can actually relax and feel confident that the staff she is with are engaging in a positive and constructive way that will support her learning and development."
