The Dandelion Project, Les Beaucamps and Innovation Unit invite you to watch Most Likely To Succeed; the Sundance nominated documentary feature film, being screened around the world to invited audiences interested to explore fresh ideas and bold new approaches to teaching and learning in schools.
Most Likely offers an intelligent critique of schools and a glimpse of what can be achieved though alternative approaches, using High Tech High School as a case study. The issues and big ideas the film explores are relevant and have implications for all education systems.
Watch a 2 minute trailer, here.
Running time: 1hr 26 minutes. The screening will begin at 7pm, and we will be hosting a Q&A afterwards with Louise Thomas from Innovation Unit. We encourage all those attending to join us for conversation after the film has finished.

Louise leads their education portfolio, including programmes radically redesigning secondary schools, developing partnerships with the most innovative school providers from all over the world to bring their models to the UK. Innovation UK have been transforming public services through innovation for over a decade, after becoming independent from what is now the Department for Education (DfE) in 2006. Today they work across the full range of public services to tackle major social challenges of the 21st Century.
When & Where
The Dandelion Foundation
The underlying motivation behind The Dandelion Foundation is to bring the community together to help create a better place for us all to live.
Every islander already has the potential to offer our community something to help our community to move forward in some way. The Dandelion Foundation aims to release that potential.
The world is changing every day. Making a big difference at our community level no longer requires the resources that only government is capable of delivering. The capability of small groups of people to make a real difference is already here and that provides us with a fantastic opportunity.
There has never been a better time for a community like Guernsey to unite to inspire bold action. Guernsey is both a town and a country. It is the perfect societal model to come together to try out new ideas for the benefit of the local population.
It is early days in terms of the project. At the moment it is very much about the bringing together of a large group of islanders that believe that we are capable of something more.
