Evaluation of Engage in Education
16 September 2011
Catch22 invites providers to carry out a bespoke evaluation of their national Engage in Education programme, in order to
- determine the extent to which Engage in Education has achieved its objectives
- ascertain the effectiveness of the intervention and its impact on schools
- assess the impact of the project on attendance and attainment for entire year groups.
Engage in Education
The DfE have funded Catch22 and our partners to deliver a pilot scheme that aims to improve both the attendance and attainment of young people at Key Stages 3 and 4 (11 to 16-year-olds) in schools in Manchester, Newcastle, Bristol, Croydon and Essex.
Engage in Education will work to reduce the risk of exclusion from school (and in Manchester target those young people in Year 11 at risk of dropping out of education, employment or training) through work with the young people and support to the whole school staff body.
This work will include:
- one-to-one group, keywork family support and volunteer input for mentoring, raising aspiration and community engagement from Catch22
- accredited and non-accredited group work from Pupil Parent Partnership (PPP) teachers
- school and delivery staff workforce learning and development from specialist communications advisors from ICAN.
- school staff workforce development from Dyslexia Action.
The Catch22 Engage in Education programme is funded by the DfE until March 2013. The evaluation will inform decisions about:
- the future funding and sustainability of the service
- the development of the programme
- the cost-effectiveness of the programme.
Catch22 is commissioning a robust evaluation of the Engage in Education programme to look at the delivery process and quality assurance measures in place, outcomes for young people and the effectiveness of the programme. We are also inviting applicants to be innovative in suggesting new methods of evaluation.
Evaluations are required to report by the end of April 2013, with an interim report due at the end of April 2012.
Responses should be submitted by 12pm on Monday 3 October 2011 to:
National Programme Manager
Catch 22 Engage in Education Programme
3rd Floor Churchill House, 142-146 Old Street
London EC1V 9BW
