Safe Skills – Implementation Dashboard

Working with the Ariel Trust to design an implementation dashboard to guide rapid cycle innovation and testing.

About

The Ariel Trust design and deliver a suite of interactive software programmes that support teachers in responding to challenging social issues. The resources take a skills-based approach to preventative education and are designed to be used in mainstream education settings.

Safe Skills is one such resource for children aged 9-12 years, aiming to improve the safety of young people in relation to the risks associated with ‘grooming’ and child sexual exploitation.

The Ariel Trust and the Dartington Service Design Lab have been awarded a grant from the Centre of Expertise of Child Sexual Abuse at Barnardo’s to pilot and test this new resource.

“The Lab will design and build an innovative implementation dashboard to monitor the delivery and outcomes of the Safe Skills resource and guide improvement efforts.”

Our role

The Lab will work with the Ariel Trust to design and build an innovative implementation dashboard to monitor the delivery and outcomes of the Safe Skills resource. This dashboard will be used to test adaptations of the resources as they are piloted in order to guide improvement efforts.

The pilot project will commence in October 2017 and conclude in March 2018.
