As an outcome of the work we are doing in schools, students are building on their learning and translating it into self-led social action campaigns and increases parent engagement which has been shown to increase school attendance. Participation on our leadership, entrepreneurship, and Innovation programmes has prompted a call to action for students who want to take their new skills and experience and turn it into something positive for their school and their wider community.
One example of this new social action is in a UK school which has a partner school overseas. Students working on our Leadership Programme decided to translate their learning into a mentoring initiative for the younger students in the school. The older students (aged 17 and 18 years) devised their own training module aimed at 12 and 13 year olds to learn about using Neuroeducation in with other subjects.
