Description/Abstract

This paper describes contrasting staff responses to the implementation of an alternative curriculum, Skill Force, for disaffected pupils in the UK. The perceptions of programme and school staff were compared based on data from questionnaires completed by 62 Skill Force staff 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 the intervention than the wider school context. This has implications for policy.
