MCR Pathways evaluation

The Robertson Trust in partnership with the Life Changes Trust and the STV Appeal, began working with the MCR Foundation and MCR Pathways in 2015 to support the expansion of its mentoring programme for care-experienced and disadvantaged young people in Glasgow beyond the initial pilot schools.

ScotCen’s evaluation presents the quantative and qualitative findings around the programme’s impact in Glasgow, reaching some important conclusions. In particular, participants were shown to be significantly more likely to stay on at school, much more likely to achieve at least one qualification at SCQF Level 5 and more likely to move on to a positive post-school destination than equivalent young people not supported by the programme.
