The North East Raising Aspiration Partnership seeks to ensure all activities we deliver are fully measurable in terms of impact to students. In order to do this, we map each of our activities against the following three evaluation frameworks:
The NERUPI Framework is a method of evaluating higher education outreach against clear aims and levels that seek to compare effectiveness of impact across activities.
Develop young peoples’ knowledge and awareness of the benefits of higher education
Develop young peoples’ capacity to navigate the Higher Education sector and make informed choices
Develop young peoples’ confidence and resilience to negotiate the challenges of university life
Develop young peoples’ study skills and capacity for academic attainment
Develop young peoples’ understanding by contextualizing subject knowledge
The Gatsby Benchmarks are a framework of 8 guidelines created by Gatsby Foundation to help schools create the best careers provision they can.
A stable careers programme
Learning from career and labour market information
Addressing the needs of each pupil
Linking curriculum learning to careers
Encounters with employers and employees
Experiences of workplaces
Encounters with further and higher education
North East Regional Progression Framework
The North East Regional Progression Framework has been created by the regional Uni Connect Programme to support practitioners delivering higher education interventions. This helps to develop meaningful programmes of activity to increase knowledge and understanding of higher education.
Each learning objective focuses on one of the following themes:
Introducing higher education
Routes to further and higher education
Attainment and how this supports progression
Financial support for further and higher education
Applying the further and higher education
Transition to further and higher education
