SIPP Logo pngThe School Improvement Partnership Project is a three year Erasmus+ Project, which took place between September 2017 and August 2020, working with 5 partner organisations across Europe.

The School Improvement Partnership Project utilises the idea of the LPUK Grade Predictor and how its concept could be used to develop European Grade Predictor Tools in other education systems to help support:

• Students choosing appropriate courses to study and so aid retention at Post-16

• Sharing practice and resources across education systems to help support student target setting and progress at Post-16
