The Transformation Trust is nominated charity for Vivo Miles
Children’s charity The Transformation Trust has partnered with Vivo Rewards, an award-winning web-based rewards system which allows teachers to award students electronic points called “Vivos” for good work, effort and much more.
Funded entirely by the private sector, The Transformation Trust provides children from deprived and challenged communities with extra-curricular opportunities and experiences that will help them fulfil their potential. The activities are the sorts of things young people want to stay behind after school to take part in – but they also help equip them with core skills, such as numeracy, communication and technological fluency, which are valued in the workplace and will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Amy Leonard, Chief Executive of The Transformation Trust, said: “I am delighted that Vivo Rewards has chosen to partner with the Trust, and I hope that schools in the Trust’s network up and down the country take advantage of this brilliant online rewards tool.
“Our ambition is for every young person – no matter what their background – to have access to experiences and opportunities that will help prepare them for further study and employment, and our partnership with Vivo will go a long way in helping us to achieve this.”
Adrian Burt, Managing Director of Vivo Rewards, said: “The work of Vivo mirrors that of The Transformation Trust, and I am very much looking forward to working jointly together to help improve student motivation as well as raise attendance and results, and therefore improving their life chances for the future.”
