Unleash creativity, collaboration and innovation with an in-the-moment student advocacy project
During IMPACT, students manage their own learning and build competencies across four key areas: core skills, innovation, leadership and enterprise – helping them to stand out from the crowd on job or UCAS/college applications.
What is IMPACT?
IMPACT is a project-based challenge for students aged 16–19. Students collaborate in teams to research the UN Sustainable Development Goals, identify a problem faced by a different country during the pandemic, and use innovation and design thinking skills to create a solution – before communicating it to the world!
IMPACT has been created by Derek Browne and Ian Smith – leading innovators in the fields of entrepreneurship and global citizenship respectively.
Both authors have been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise Promotion.
IMPACT has been designed as an enrichment programme for international schools all over the world. However, it has some unique applications and benefits for International Baccalaureate and Cambridge International students.
Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS): IMPACT supports the aims and objectives of the CAS syllabus – inspiring students to investigate, act on an identified problem, innovate, problem-solve, collaborate and reflect on their experiences.
Global Perspectives: IMPACT has been mapped to the syllabus aims of IGCSE Global Perspectives (0457) / International AS and A Level Global Perspectives & Research (9239).
Accessible from anywhere, on any device, IMPACT is a highly flexible resource that is perfect to be used as part of a blended learning solution.
Each of the 10 topics builds discrete 21st-century skills in the following areas:
- Sustainability literacy
- Action research and investigation
- Innovation and problem solving
- Evaluating critically
- Design thinking
- Project management
- Driving for results
