‘Wrong’ answers, right response: learning from randomised controlled trials when you don’t get the results you were hoping for

Realising Ambition is delighted to announce the launch of its eleventh Programme Insight, the final of a series of short briefings sharing key learning from the programme. Our eleventh Programme Insight summarises what we think are the key learning points to have emerged from undertaking Randomised Controlled Trials within the programme. It is a ‘think piece’ – qualitative reflections from the team.
About Realising Ambition and our Programme Insights series
Realising Ambition is a £25m Big Lottery Fund programme that supported 22 organisations across the UK to replicate services aimed at preventing youth offending. Our Insights are designed to support anyone undertaking or commissioning services with a focus on replication and evidence.

The Realising Ambition programme is managed by a consortium committed to improving outcomes for children. It is led by Catch22, alongside the Dartington Social Research Unit, Substance and The Young Foundation.
