Since last November mobile technology was introduced into the scheme to explore family learning and access.

BPAP is a scheme that was introduced in October 2005 by Andrew Adonis, the Parliamentary Undersecretary of State for Schools and Learners, aimed to increase success among Black pupils through a tailored leadership and management strategy intended to boost effective teaching and learning, tackle poor behaviour and bullying, introduce mentoring and increase involvement of parents.
