East Learning runs Aspirations, a data-led programme which helps schools provide excellent, tailored personal development opportunities.
The UK has one of the most unequal societies in the world, in which your background can severely restrict your future. National studies have repeatedly shown that children from disadvantaged backgrounds are less likely to achieve academically, less likely to be involved in extracurricular activities which help develop life skills, and more likely to develop mental health problems.
This needs to change.
East Learning CIC's Aspirations Programme enables schools and colleges to offer their students the best possible personal development programmes, programmes that are designed and informed by data collected from the students themselves. It means more students receive a holistic education and are better prepared for future life.
Skill names and definitions in the Aspirations Programme are mapped against the Skills Builder Universal Framework, using this consistent language to support students in identifying their skills and measuring their progress.
A host of quizzes with targeted, skills-based questions serve as a method of student reflection which provides quantified results that can be tracked over time.
The programme provides students and teachers with links to further essential skill development opportunities, as part of a plan-building process for each individual student.
