Hallam, Susan, Rogers, Lynne, Rhamie, Jasmine, Shaw, Jacquelene, Rees, Emilce, Haskins, Heather, Blackmore, Jenny and Hallam, Jonathan (2003) Evaluation of skill force , London, UK Insitute of Education, University of London 142pp.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


The evaluation considered the impact of Skill Force on pupil attendance, exclusions (fixed term and permanent), behaviour, and attainment. It also considered the factors which contributed towards the success of Skill Force, challenges for the future and value for money.
Data were collected from a range of sources. Skill Force students and staff completed a questionnaire as did link teachers in schools and members of schools’ Senior Management Teams. Interviews were undertaken during visits to six projects. Data were collected from schools regarding attendance, exclusions and examination results.
Overall, Skill Force is an extremely well managed programme which provides a unique service to schools. It has been successful in meeting the needs of many disaffected students,
improving their motivation, confidence, communication and social skills. It has reduced exclusions, improved behaviour, attendance, attitudes towards education and attainment and
also provided students with a range of practical, vocational qualifications. It also offers excellent value for money.
