Download our guides to support your submission to CLD Review

We have created two resources to support young people and youth workers to be informed and respond to The Review of Community Learning and Development (CLD).

Your voice is especially important in the review of CLD because the youth work sector, voluntary and statutory, represents a vital part of the wider CLD field, made up of close to 60,000 paid staff and volunteers – serving over 400,000 young people.

To help with this aim, YouthLink Scotland has produced two short papers to help young people and youth work practitioners respond to the independent review of CLD by the closing date of March 3.

The first paper is designed for our members and key stakeholders who wish to make a submission on behalf of their organisation:

In collaboration with young people, we have also produced a young person friendly version of the learner consultation to provide information and for youth workers to support young people’s participation.

In the second paper, we have provided supportive steering notes and linked resources for youth work practitioners to consider when replying to some of the questions.

The youth work sector’s voice must be clearly articulated throughout the Review. We strongly encourage member organisations and stakeholders to participate by replying to the consultation and encouraging organisations and young people to do the same.
