Inspiring Purpose


WW1 Teachers



Inspiring Purpose enables students to explore their character, ideals and values through a unique poster template using web-based resources. The programme is ideal for 10-16 year olds and can be used with a small group, or an entire year group.

We ask teachers to submit their three most inspirational pieces of work to us by Friday 4th May 2018 so that their pupils can have the opportunity to take part in our awards and so that we can showcase and celebrate our inspirational young people.

WWI: Inspiring Purpose has been created to mark the centenary of the First World War, it will help pupils learn about the heroic stories of those who fought and suffered on the front, often making the ultimate sacrifice.

You will find a ‘Teachers Introduction Guide’ and ‘Launch Lesson Plan’ and other resources to help you deliver the programme under ‘Teacher Resources’ below.
