Inspiring Purpose

Impact

Introduction

This space is an opportunity for us to share and illustrate the impact that the Inspiring Purpose programme and its work have had on young people throughout Scotland, the UK and the Commonwealth.

We have had over 90,000 young people participate in Inspiring Purpose in 58 different nations and territories, and engaging all 32 Local Authority areas in Scotland. We see the impact we have in classrooms and on young people through the feedback we receive at events, and from teachers and pupils on our posters. We see the effort and transformational change that young people go through completing Inspiring Purpose – and we want to share that with you.

In this part of the website you will be able to see posters, photos, awards ceremonies, events and projects from previous years as well as details of our research projects and our partners.

Inspire>Aspire Findings

‘Inspire>Aspire: Global Citizens in the Making’: Findings from a Process Evaluation - 2015

During the 2013/14 school year leading Social Scientists from Montclair State University USA conducted a ‘Pilot Study’ using ground-breaking methodology to study the programme effect in detail.

You can find a summary of their findings HERE.

This has informed our new study which is happening now in 40 S2 classes from 30 schools throughout Scotland. In partnership with Montclair State University USA and Ipsos MORI our new research will investigate how our young people set goals, demonstrate future-mindedness and develop a sense of purpose.

 

What happens when a legacy programme reaches a generation of young people in 100’s of schools both at home and abroad? Does it help them to become active, connected ‘Global Citizens in the Making’? Find out the answers here in our 2014 Legacy Report.

Evaluation and Impact

We have years of anecdotal teacher and pupil feedback that demonstrated the transformational effect that taking part in Inspiring Purpose can have upon young people. We are now entering a more in-depth evaluation phase for our work.

During the 2016-17 academic year, leading social scientists, from Montclair State University USA, working in partnership with IPSOS MORI are using ground-breaking methodology to study responses from a generation of young people and their teachers. Our research will investigate how our young people set goals, demonstrate future-mindedness and develop a sense of purpose.

The research team will be working with 40 S2 classes for this project and our aim is to attract a diverse group of schools with representation from each of the Local Authority areas in Scotland.

We will be delighted to hear from schools and anyone else interested in learning more, please contact admin@inspiringpurpose.org.uk

Partners

Our ambition is that every young person has the opportunity to take part in the Inspire Aspire programme. To achieve this, we are actively seeking partners for delivery and funding.

Inspire Aspire helps young people to:

1. Make progress towards the outcomes of Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellence.

2. Make informed and ambitious choices about jobs and careers (Developing the Young Workforce).

3. Encourages them to be the best they can be (the Scottish Attainment Challenge). We are actively seeking conversations with the people who can help us realise our ambition. For more details, read here.

 

We currently work with a range of partners to enhance the Inspire Aspire programme and to offer teachers and pupils a 'What Next?'
