Challenger Troop evaluation report 2013-14: an impact evaluation of six and twelve week Challenger Troop military-ethos programmes for school children on attainment, attendance, behaviour and social skills

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This is an impact evaluation on attainment, attendance, behaviour and social skills of Challenger Troop (CT), a military-ethos intervention programme working within schools in London and the South East of England in the academic year 2013-2014. The University of Brighton was commissioned to compile this report. Data from 29 schools, pupil assessments by Teachers and a self-assessment questionnaire from pupils were analysed. Semi-structured interviews were also carried out with Teaching Assistants, Teachers, Deputy Heads, parents/carers and pupils to assess their opinions on the impact of the Challenger Troop's six and twelve week programmes. The evidence forcefully endorses the benefits and improvements that the Challenger Troop programme has brought to the lives of pupils.
