VESPA was developed by Steve Oakes and Martin Griffith at a 6th form College in Oldham. They identified 5 areas which if underdeveloped led to underperformance at A Level. The VESPA mindset is a series of diagnostic activities to help identify in which area you must develop as a student.
The five characteristics and qualities they discovered in high-performing students are vision, effort, systems, practice and attitude, or VESPA. Below are sample diagnostic activities from across the FIVE disciplines. A full suite of lessons can be accessed within the Caerleon Google Classroom by using CODE: bdupqz2
The Video below is a recording of a Webinar from October 2020 that introduces the concept of VESPA to parents.
