- The survey covers participant attitudes, improvements in skills and self-perceptions resulting in a rounded view of the project’s achievement – in addition to the attainment of accredited qualifications.
- The surveys were issued to Inspire participants in 2013/2014, with respondents describing considerable or slight improvements in their skills (62%), increased confidence in expressing themselves clearly (38%) and an ability to talk in front of a group (38%).
- The survey illustrated the efficacy and reach of OC Inspire, with the majority of respondents expressing significant improvements in their skill set after participation.
- 19% of respondents, however, reported a decline in their skill set. That is, they demonstrated less optimism about their skills after the project than before. This could be attributable to self-assessment issues, but we cannot be sure.
