Intellectual Output 05 – European Grade Predictor Tool Intervention Guide

The European Grade Predictor Tool Intervention Guide will form the production of a resource directory aimed at sharing best practice in successful interventions and methodologies to realise the full potential of students and impact on dropout and achievement.

The key objective here is to produce an intervention guide which staff using the European Grade Predictor Tool can use to supplement their approaches to supporting learners. On some occasions the European Grade Predictor Tool will itself be enough on its own to help the student embark successfully on a course of action but we recognise that may not always be the case.

The directory can be used as a standalone tool but is primarily to support the European Grade Predictor Tools. It will be used by teachers/other professionals in education as an overview of possibilities of academic, behavioural, social, and emotional supports for use alongside the European Grade Predictor Tool.

Each partner country will contribute:

  • a list of institutions on national/regional and local level which provide training, consultancy and guidance;
  • a list of strategic documents, studies, reports and scientific articles;
  • a set of curriculum approaches which can be delivered across Europe by teachers. These will be researched and shared at transnational meetings and also integrated into the training through an exchange of practice.
  • a list of web resources.
  • all shared practice and resources will be documented on partner websites.

The resource directory enables the European Grade Predictor Tool to not only be a one off tool but a powerful intervention that can become part of other powerful interventions to help students achieve. It becomes part of the wrap around service and pastoral support that institutions offer students to help them fulfil their potential.

The guide will be transferable because whilst having a common approach it will be developed in each partner country with the same focus and content.

It brings an innovative element to the European Grade Predictor Tool which is a standalone product.

Work on the European Grade Predictor Tool Intervention Guide commences in March 2018.
