Outcomes—As this is a brand new project an ‘Assessment Framework’ will be created to encourage ’Information Sharing’ between the school, the parent and the pupil based on the five outcomes set out by the Norfolk Children’s Young People’s Plan which are Being Healthy, Staying Safe, Enjoying and Achieving, Making a Positive Contribution and Achieving Economic Well-Being.

The evidence of ‘need’ is clearly stated in the Norfolk Children Young People’s Plan produced by Norfolk County Council. Its mission statement says that ‘We believe that all young children have the right to be healthy, happy and safe; to be loved, valued and respected; and to have high aspirations for the future. They also state that they want to boost support for children in the communities in which they live. Be and feel equipped to make life choices and to take responsibility for themselves..Raising aspirations is one of three major themes that cuts across all their work. As well as this Schools Perspectives on Learning state students must be inspired, engaged creatively and be appropriately challenged .

Although the workshop modules are all connected to ‘life-skills’ objectives, the delivery of the sessions are vital to their success so with that in mind I feel it’s not only my sporting experience and achievements that are crucial in setting high levels/standards but its also my good character, enthusiasm and passion in the delivery which will make a positive difference to young people’s lives. Ultimately what I am selling is Jeremy Goss as a ‘role model’ of success!

I would look to link with key-partners such as the Education authority, schools and colleges and have already established ‘pilot schools’ in Flegg High School in Marsham and St. Felix High School in Southwold. Each school would identify students who they think would benefit from the course. Two major criteria to identify students would be risk of exclusion from school and/or persistent absentees from school i.e under 80% attendance. These groups often suffer from low self esteem through lack of achievement.

In terms of numbers per session I would be happy to deal with 4 schools per week for a term of 6 weeks with 15 to 20 in each group. It’s a very bespoke course where schools could require a one hour session per day or a 10am to 3pm session with different number of groups involved. In total this go from 80 students in one week to a possible 240. Schools could ask for pupil payment to cover the costs but most schools will have a budget for this type of project.
