Evaluation of youth work in schools

The Welsh Government has commissioned Arad to undertake an evaluation of the current levels of youth work in schools and its impact. The research will identify and provide an overview of the range of youth work provision that is being provided by the statutory and the voluntary youth work sector to schools across Wales, for 11-16 and 16-18. The evaluation will assess how these projects are contributing to young people’s attendance, behaviour and attainment in schools and identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges for ongoing youth work provision in schools.
