Abstract: The project aims at a re-orientation of attitudes among inner-city schoolchildren, improving their selfimage and their attitudes towards post-school education and employment. These children lead almost unbelievably circumscribed lives. They see no place for themselves, or at best only a menial role, in the world of employment, and regard education beyond the minimum legal requirement as something quite without relevance to their lives. Even at the pre-16 level education is perceived as having little value, and truancy rates in inner-city schools are often well over 50%. The vehicle for the reorientation process is a partnership between local education authorities, industry and commerce, and higher education. The University of Salford is a partner in the Salford Compact, and Project SUCCESS may be regarded as a wider extension of the compact principle.
