Welsh Government – Evaluation of the Youth Engagement Progression Framework (2014-15)

Arad, in partnership with ICF has been commissioned to undertake a formative evaluation of the Youth Engagement and Progression Framework (YEPF) on behalf of the Welsh Government. The evaluation includes detailed research on the progress made in implementing the framework across local authorities in Wales. Interviews with stakeholders (including Careers Wales, schools, training providers and local authority managers) were undertaken in all local authorities in Wales as well as interviews with policy leads and national stakeholders such as the Welsh Government and Job Centre Plus. An evaluation framework has also been developed for a future impact evaluation of the YEPF.
