In the UK, the OU team conducted workshops with four groups spread across South West and South East England (two in SW and two in SE). Two are in primary schools and two in secondary, and the age span of students involved is 10-17 years. Altogether around 45 young people were involved, with 5 teachers.
Most of these groups remained the same throughout the first project year; one of the SW groups has been replaced by another allowing a wider age span. The OU team has also begun conversations with a 16-19 College and a University which could provide opportunities to work with students aged 16-24 and staff in both institutions.
