Marginal Gains Programme

Marginal Gains Programme

Unlock your students’ full potential with our innovative learning programme based on the concept of Marginal Gains. By making small, incremental improvements in various areas of their education and life, your learners will discover their potential to achieve remarkable results and reach their goals.


With emphasis on manageable improvements and achievements, through the use of relatable role models, this highly impactful and interactive programme reinforces learning by engaging students. This programme is targeted to support young men improve their educational attainment and will support your students to reach their full educational potential.

Over a series of three workshops, students will understand how to apply the theory based on the themes covered:


Marginal Gains

Workshop 1 focuses on the theory, practice and application to the life and education of young people. It focuses on how making small improvements, with a particular focus on education, can support us to work towards achieving our goals.


Goal Setting

Workshop 2 supports learners to understanding the theory and how to set goals and apply the principles in a practical way. Using the steps to success, we will focus on ‘making a plan’ & ‘getting it to work’. This workshop focuses on the process and progress, rather than the end result.


Resilience & Growth Mind-Set

Supporting young people to become more resilient learners. By revisiting the steps to success, we will focus on the concept of ‘sticking to it’, in line with Margin Gains and the concept of 1% improvements. Learners will develop strategies to self-direct, stay motivated and overcome challenges in the context of education & progression.
