The Find Your Talent (FYT) programme commenced with an announcement of a pilot of a cultural offer to all children and young people in England in The Children’s Plan comprising an entitlement to five hours per week of high-quality cultural experiences. The intention was to help ensure children and young people stay on the path to success by participating in positive activities and experiences which develop their talents.
This report provides an overview of the main findings of the FYT programme evaluation. The aim of the evaluation was to assess the impact of the programme in the ten pathfinder areas between 2008 and 2011, and to construct the evidence base for future investment based on different starting points for different delivery models in different places.
