National Impact Evaluation
The aims of Scottish Attainment Challenge are brought into even sharper focus as the impact of the current public health crisis is felt most keenly in the country’s most disadvantaged communities. It’s not yet clear how Education in post-lockdown Scotland can best evolve to enable young people to thrive, despite the unequal challenges they face, but it’s evident that youth work has a unique role to play in working collaboratively with – and outwith – schools to support health and wellbeing and more positive outcomes for those most adversely affected.
Youthlink Scotland is gathering case studies for a new national evaluation that will help to demonstrate the positive contribution that youth work is already making to the Scottish Attainment Challenge, and strengthen the case for more creative partnership working in this unprecedented year - and beyond. We want to include examples of projects from all parts of Scotland. You don’t need to be working in direct partnership with a school to be involved– just doing great work that you know is making a real difference to young people’s confidence and skills.
Please let us know as soon as possible if your organisation can contribute. We’ve created some easy-to-use resources to gather the information that is needed. Any project / programme delivered over the last 12 months can be included, as well as work that is happening this summer (as long as it can be evaluated by the end of August).
Please email Gill Gracie at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to contribute. Alternatively, give Gill a ring to discuss on 07788 277574.
