Whole Education

Whole Education

  • Work directly with schools and clusters of schools to develop social action that is sustainable, high quality, genuinely student-led and with a clear double-benefit to young people and their community, through the National Youth Social Action Project and Whole Education Student Network.
  • Increase the quality of Whole Education schools’ engagement with that NCS, thereby giving their students access to high quality social action outside term-time and the learning that can be built upon this in term-time.
  • Trial ways to recognise the wider skills and qualities young people are developing such as through Digital Badges.
  • Trialling ways to recognise the wider skills and qualities young people are developing (e.g., through Digital Badges).
  • Increasing the number of Whole Education schools that engage with NCS to 75% by Summer 2015.
  • Improving the quality of engagement with NCS and other social action opportunities, with 10 Whole Education schools leading the way (e.g., by linking social action to the curriculum, engaging a high % of young people).

Quote from Charlotte Hill, CEO at Step Up To Serve
“The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK.
We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life.
Over 350 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?”
