How to Thrive - improving pupils' non-cognitive skills
Around 30 schools were recruited to the trial in two main stages during 2013. The test schools are delivering a structured programme within Personal Health and Social Education from year 7 to year 10. NIESR is evaluating the impact of the programme on pupils’ academic outcomes. The process evaluation is aimed at assessing the design and approach of the programme, including training, analysis of materials, survey of existing practice, teacher response to the programme and the experiences of pupils through focus groups.
Timescale and funder
The evaluation is funded by the Education Endowment Foundation. It began in 2013 and will be completed in 2020 when the final report will be published.
