Over the summer, I have been working on developing the software and video for a really exciting project called ‘The Aspire Award’. Although in it’s early days, the idea is to create an awards scheme whereby students are in the driving seat.
So, why undertake something like this?
To increase student engagement in extra-curricular activities
To increase student attainment, well-being and outcomes
To reward students for their accomplishments
To empower students to take control of their own successes
To give students a record of achievement that they can take to employers, colleges and universities.
Details of the scheme and the video can me found here: http://www.aspireaward.co.uk/
