This paper describes staff perceptions of the implementation of an alternative curriculum, skill force, for disaffected pupils in the UK.

The perceptions of skill force and school staff were compared based on data from questionnaires completed by 62 skill force and 84 school staff, and interviews with representative samples of each.

While the data indicated that the programme had been successful in re-engaging the students with education, the improvement was more marked in relation to the skill force programme than the wider school context.
