Secondary schools must comply with the following requirements in order to participate in YPI NI.
If you have any questions about the following requirements, please contact us.
YPI will be taught in all classes of one mandatory course across one chosen year level: 9 to 14. This is in order to be inclusive to all students.
Your school has a minimum of 25 students in the year group selected to participate in YPI.
Your school’s YPI Lead Teacher will be the main point of contact for YPI communications, and will provide updates on your school’s YPI project upon request throughout the year.
YPI will be delivered over the course of at least four weeks (in each class), using/adapting the lessons in the provided YPI curriculum guide.
Charity site visits are a requirement of YPI. Your school will permit students to make off-campus site visits to their chosen charities.
Charities are to be identified and selected by students, and must meet the YPI eligibility requirements: registered charity providing social services directly to people in your local community.
A Final Presentations Assembly will be arranged to permit finalist teams from each participating year group to give their presentation to an audience and a panel of judges. Minimum recommendation for audience: one entire year group. Judging panel must have a majority of students.
