Winning Scotland has formed a partnership with the University of Bristol and the University of Cardiff Public Health Intervention Responsive Studies Team (PHIRST).
Funded by the National Institute for Health Research, the partnership will underpin an evaluation of our flagship ‘Mindset Teams’ programme, and ultimately understand its long-term potential to positively impact public health and children’s education.
Mindset Teams supports the development of a growth mindset culture in Scottish schools in order to improve learning resilience for health and education outcomes.
The programme enables teaching practitioners and senior leaders in education to work together to develop, implement and embed a growth mindset culture in schools to address pupil learning, wellbeing and ultimately attainment and inequalities.
Our earlier findings suggest that Mindset Teams positively impacts teacher perceptions and improve pupil attitudes, but the PHIRST evaluation takes a closer look at the longer term impact. Can Mindset Teams help reduce the poverty gap and improve health?
