St Bede’s and St Joseph’s along with approximately 100 other schools, has signed up to participate in an exciting research project with the Department for Education (DfE) and the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT). The DfE has commissioned BIT, a social purpose research company specialising in the application of behavioural science, to trial new approaches to help students with their A-level subject selection. We consider it is important to be involved in this project as the decisions a student makes at A-level can shape the set of education and career options available to them.
Please see the letter for full information. If you do not want your Y11 son/daughter to take part please return the slip to school by Wednesday 13th February.
