Short and long-term research and development, spanning 20 years

1998-2001 
In 1998 many of Scotland’s most successful entrepreneurs completed our behavioural and motivational assessments. This was important research, because we identified common “success characteristics”. This “success benchmark” allowed us to find and teach young people with similar traits. 

Our findings were presented at the 4th McGill Conference on International Entrepreneurship, Strathclyde University, September 2001.

2002-2005
The government invited us to contribute toward Scotland’s National Debate on Education.  

We were a part of the Columba 1400 Head Teachers Leadership Academy Team. 

The Scottish Executive Education Department (SEED) supported us to complete a 3-year National Education Project.
Hundreds of young people benefited, because their self-esteem and self-confidence improved. 

2014
We conducted a long-term study to see how Mindscreen students compared to UK averages for all young people aged 16-24. We were delighted, because Mindscreen students were 47% less likely to be unemployed.

2015-2018
We researched the emerging child depression problem, devised a solution, and built and tested everything.
