Campaigning for Brilliant Residentials

We’re calling on everyone: schools, teachers, parents, students, residential providers, Initial Teacher Education providers, youth groups and all those working with young people to pledge to work together to provide more and higher quality brilliant residentials.

What makes a Brilliant Residential?

The independent evaluation of the Learning Away programme has provided overwhelming evidence of the impact and benefits of a residential experience, and helped us to understand what makes a brilliant residential. If delivered in this way, residentials can have a huge impact on schools, teachers and on children and young people of all ages, improving their: resilience; achievement; relationships; and engagement with learning.

By the understanding of how to plan and deliver brilliant residentials gained throughout the action research phase of the Learning Away programme, we have created a range of free resources. These will help schools and providers to develop brilliant residentials of their own, leading to whole school improvement and brilliant futures for young people. We want everyone to know about this and your pledge will help.
