In Turkey there is fierce competition to succeed. In such an environment, many students feel intense pressure for academic achievement. A high proportion of pupils drop out of secondary school. There are more than 12 million young people in Turkey and many are felt to lack the skills they need to succeed.
In partnership with the Government of Turkey, International Inspiration plans to help improve primary schools teachers' skills in delivering high-quality physical education. By doing so it will be supporting more children to learn and develop through sport. The programme will then use sport to help young people realise their potential as leaders, engaging them in activities in their schools and communities. Partnerships are also being established between schools in Turkey and Scotland.
