From the web site: "Demitri Comino initiated GRASP many years ago and the Comino Foundation revived its use as a descriptive shorthand for the approach.

It concentrates on outcomes - what we want to achieve rather than what we want to do. It is a process of achieving. It springs from a belief that each of us has the potential to achieve far more than we do, and that through education and training young people can develop their ability and motivation to learn, to succeed and to make things happen for themselves and others.
