YPI NI has a focused team of professionals on hand to support all schools throughout programme introduction, planning, delivery, and development.

This year we have launched pre and post surveys to offer schools the opportunities to track the skills development prior to and after the delivery of the programme linking in with the key skills outlined in the Northern Ireland Curriculum across Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.

Our survey data shows improvements to students:

  • Empathy
  • Confidence
  • Leadership Skills
  • Research, teamwork and presentation skills
  • Understanding of social issues and the role of local charities
