Independent Evaluation brings great results 

An independent evaluation of the Social Enterprise in Schools program was conducted throughout 2016. Early results show that all students are engaged, in the driver’s seat and are having fun.

The evaluation considered the impact of the program as it moves from the pilot phase to a full scale roll out and a full copy of the report will soon be available.
