We’re calling for 100 youth work projects from across Scotland to take part in a national evaluation that will showcase how youth work supports young people’s skills development and ‘readiness to learn’.
The national evaluation is opportunity for youth work teams to spotlight the difference their work makes to educational outcomes for young people – and contribute to a pilot impact dashboard for youth work that will help to make the case for the important role that the sector plays in tackling the poverty related attainment gap.
We’re looking for youth work projects, based in school or in the community, that have taken place in the last 18 months. We are particularly interested in projects where youth workers have supported young people affected by poverty who face multiple barriers to learning.
To complete the form, you’ll need:
Thanks to JP Morgan’s Tech for Good Team whose development support has enabled us to pilot this customised dashboard, built around the National Youth Work Outcomes and Skills Framework.
