“The ABC programme is one aspect of our intervention programme and has had a clear impact on the engagement of our disaffected students. Along with the use of other interventions we saw improvements in the motivation and higher levels of confidence and aspiration as well as improved behaviour eg. less internal truancy and better attendance at after school, holiday and weekend revision classes.”

“Hello Hannah, I’m one of the students from your presentation on Friday at Bodmin College. I wanted you to know that your whole life story really changed my outlook on life In general. You helped me to restore my faith in people and pursue my dreams. I’ve got my mind set on being PM. You have made a huge difference and given me the motivation I needed to reach my full potential, not only in the exams, but in life. I thought you were incredible and everything you said was incredible, hopeful and Heart warming.”

An excellent resource to support pupils’ personal development that draws on a range of inspiring life experiences and is presented by a group of world-class speakers. The clear well structured workbook reinforces the key messages and will provide tangible evidence of pupils’ learning and achievements. This unique programme is a strong addition to any school curriculum and will undoubtedly help schools demonstrate their commitment to equipping pupils with the skills that will prepare them for their next stage of education and future employment.
Hannah’s excellent presentation is backed up with a comprehensive set of resources which motivate and inspire students. As recognised in our recent Ofsted inspection, ABC Success also helps students understand British Values in their own context. I would wholeheartedly recommend any school to use the package, and Senior Leaders will be delighted to know that the programme is mapped against both the new Ofsted criteria and British Values.
