A Success Story From A Past Student

Hearing back from a past student who is now studying law at Reading University

Typically, an Educator will get in touch with us with goals for their students. This could range from raising aspirations in a challenging area or helping to ignite a fire within coasting students to helping high achievers manage stress or teaching students the basics of finance.

Once we understand the goals, we explore delivery options, create a plan and book the session(s) into the diary.

We plan, we prepare, we show up and we deliver to the best of our abilities the young people.

Now, in the moment, you can gauge how a session has been received. From teacher feedback, student comments and conversations with students that take place after a session, where they pull you aside to let you know their takeaway and the most impactful moment for them. We may even receive quantitative feedback from evaluations and key measures being tracked depending on the initial goal.

The one thing that is really hard to measure; is how exactly a student is going to take the ideas and apply them to their life beyond Education. So when we received this message, from a young man who took part in our session years ago. It really made us pause, read and appreciate the depth of impact working with young people can have long term. I of course will not share the whole conversation, but this extract really sums up the wonderful exchange we had.
