2022 Report: Statistical analysis of educational outcomes among Big Noise Raploch participants
Research conducted by the Glasgow Centre for Population Health has found that children and young people who take part in Big Noise Raploch are more likely to achieve positive post-school outcomes and are more likely to be in employment than those who have not participated in the programme. This most recent study is the fourth conducted by GCPH as part of the organisation’s long-term evaluation of the Big Noise model.
We hosted an exciting launch event when this report was released, find out all about the event here.
The study examined the educational outcomes of Big Noise Raploch when compared to young people in the area who did not take part in Big Noise. It found that almost all Big Noise participants achieved a positive post-school destination (98%) compared with 84% of non-participants of a similar sociodemographic background.
GCPH also found that the young people who attended Big Noise programmes were more likely to be in employment after leaving school than their counterparts, with 42% of Big Noise attendees in employment as opposed to only 30% of non-attendees.
