Our impact

Delivering results

We are committed to accurately reporting the impact we have on those who take part in one of our courses or programmes. Whether this be the pass rates on our professional programmes or the changes to a young person’s Soft Skills following a residential activity programme, we aim to be transparent.

To help us achieve this we have set ourselves two clear rules:

  • We will never over claim what we do
  • All percentages will be supported by actual numbers to avoid being misleading
