Impact indicators
  • TASC programmes are associated with significant improvements in students’ self-perception and in their links with the school and with positive social behaviours, as well as with significant reductions in behavioural problems and drug use, and increases in grade test results and school attendance.
  • An independent report which analysed the model of The After-School Corporation over four years concluded that participants improved their results in mathematics, attended school more often and improved their attitudes toward learning.
