To date independent evaluations by I & J Management Services evidences up to 65% of Skyline students achieving VCE results in excess of their aspirations prior to joining the program:
100% of students who completed the two-year Skyline Program transitioned to tertiary education or career of choice
85% of Skyline students entered university with others proceeding directly to career of choice
More than 70% of Skyline students took on leadership roles within their school or were recognised for academic excellence. Schools report that these students become role models for their siblings and peers.
With Skyline’s encouragement, support and advocacy, by far the most significant difference that Skyline students see in themselves is increased confidence and self-efficacy – personal traits that translate to longer-term personal, societal and economic benefits.
As they leave school the students say they now:
See themselves as a person of value and worth
Have confidence in their academic ability and capacity to succeed
Are better able to define and pursue a career pathway of their choice
Have stronger personal, organisational and work-readiness skills
Have increased motivation and capacity to give back to their community through leadership and volunteer work.
