The Edge provides a systematic framework to enable schools to develop and capture the student attitudes, attributes and skills which are so important for employment and life beyond school. More than 700 schools are now members of the scheme. To learn more from schools themselves as to the impact and range of approaches click on the bulletin at the end of this page.
The programme is for students from aged 4 to 18 and they progress through 7 levels (Foundation, Contender, Champion, Apprentice, Graduate, Master).
The 5 attributes developed by the programme were chosen following consultation with employers:
