Example of a School using Research & Presentation Skills

Baysgarth School, Barton, North Lincolnshire, England (2005).

The school was recognised by the Educational Development Centre (EDC) and Local Educational Authority (LEA) as doing well and leading the rest of the LEA schools in this area of study skills.

Students and teachers alike have attested to the positive changes and effect on participating students who embarked and finished this course. Student performance and behaviour improved as they completed this course.

Programme graduates took part in a national competition, coming second in that competition, using the skills gained. Some teachers have said that their teaching method and practice have been enhanced because of the way students tackle classwork and homework.

The University of Hull explored rolling out this programme across the City of Hull by using an R&PS programme facilitator as part-time staff.

Research & Presentation Skills has been used in various schools in North Lincolnshire and Hull, since 2005.
