The evaluation has shown that the SfW pilot has been successful in achieving the objectives and key measures of success identified by the stakeholders interviewed at the start of the pilot. Schools, colleges and providers are committed to the value of SfW courses and see them as having raised the status of vocational learning in schools; providers have developed and tested out different approaches to delivering courses and overcome various obstacles and challenges; schools and colleges are increasingly recognising the need to work more closely together and have started to implement strategies to strengthen their partnerships; colleges and schools are positive about the impact of courses on students’ attitudes and skills relevant to employment, their motivation to learn, and their ability to work with and relate to adults; finally, more than four-fifths of students had passed their courses by the end of the second year of the pilot.
