Wider Impact has delivered an independent evaluation of the North Staffordshire Regen School pilot programme. Established in Sheffield (see, the Regen College model is described as a ‘cross between a course and a support system’. This is because it offers learning opportunities to local people, whilst they are engaged in community projects, with the support of an experienced mentor. Regen College ‘students’ can be community members, project staff, or volunteers with local agencies; however projects must have community benefit.

The commission has involved scrutiny of outputs, wider impacts and structured in depth interviews with students, mentors, steering group members and the managing agent for the project, Wedgwood Memorial College. Declared ‘fit for purpose’ by Wider Impact, the review includes a number of strategic recommendations, which are being considered by the Regen College Multi Agency Steering Group.
