Hello and welcome to the U-Evolve podcast where we talk about the work we do and generally chat to really interesting people like Emma from Spartans.
This episode is hosted by Tolga Kuyucuoglu - Project Manager - and features Emma Easton, Head Teacher of Spartans Alternative School. They talk about how Emma got into this type of teaching and how the Alternative School works for young people excluded or threatened with exclusion. And of course they cover how U-Evolve came to be involved in support the young people (and the staff) at the school and how that works today. Eilidh talks about this too in Episode 1.
Spartans was our first partner and we are lucky to work with the great Spartan’s family.
Emma has a great Twitter feed - well worth a follow!

U-Evolve is a registered Scottish Charity based in Edinburgh working with young people aged around 11 to 18. We are doing pretty well at meeting our mission to help young people reach their potential. We are almost 100% funded by some great organisations and individuals and increasingly schools are paying for our therapeutic coaching services for their young people. This funds our therapeutic coaches who offer a blend of coaching and psychotherapy.
Please pop onto our website for more info and if you are interesting in volunteering, donating money or raising funds for us the information is on the website.
Our producers are Ben Dyer and Shelley Hutton.
