Inspiring Purpose enables pupils to explore their character, ideals and values through a unique poster template using web-based resources. The programme is ideal for 10-16 year olds and can be used with a small group, or an entire year group.

We ask teachers to submit their five most inspirational pieces of work to us by a set deadline Friday 1st May 2020 so that their pupils can have the opportunity to take part in our awards and so that we can showcase and celebrate our inspirational young people.

You will find a Teacher Manual to assist with the delivery of the programme below, this manual is designed to provide you with suggestions for implementing Inspiring Purpose and includes recommended activities for each of the poster sections. It isn’t enough to simply have pupils complete the sections of the poster. It is important to lay the groundwork that prepares pupils to complete the poster. This will include having pupils engage in several activities that encourage personal exploration.

“In general, I think I learned a lot more about myself. I have a lot of great qualities that I should give myself credit for more often. After completing the project I actually felt a renewed sense of determination to do well and fulfill my potential in life.”

Kathryn Matthews, Waid Academy

“I absolutely loved the project and discovered from things about myself that I didn’t even think of before.”

Jonah Greig, Ross High School

“From this project I learned what I want to achieve in life and how to achieve it. I will need lots of determination to reach my goals, but it will be worth it.”

Gus Molyneux, Peebles Academy
