Growth Mindset
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Teachers from all of our partner schools will join together for a training session that will look at the impact of action research on positive outcomes for school improvement. Participants will learn about research methodology and receive full training on ‘Growth Mind-sets’ in The Netherlands. Teachers will use their new skills following the training, to collaborate on the development of a classroom resource. Each school will be able to evaluate their progress using the agreed outcome measures from the training session (student focus groups, observations, questionnaires). Our aim is to measure the impact of ‘Growth Mind-sets’ delivered through the development of Citizenship resources (that focus on perceptions of Europe) and to consider whether students are more resilient having completed the agreed programme of work. Outcomes will be shared with partner schools and staff will reflect on their own practise and on how their students have changed and progressed. Project outcomes will inform a new European Citizenship cycle of work in school. Outcomes will be disseminated via web-sites and direct to other schools. Having received training in Growth Mindsets, staff will have the capacity to deliver the training to all other staff in their institution. 210, year 10 students of all ability, will receive input related to the Growth Mindset training in the first phase prior to the development of the second phase in year 2 (when a minimum of 210 further students will receive the input). As an institution, we will be evaluating students work and consider how their perspectives on their own heritage and perceptions of Europe have changed. Long term, the school will have developed and embedded a sustainable Growth Mindset culture.
