Description:
In 2011, the Department of Children and Youth Affairs commenced preparation for the development of a youth policy framework to accommodate identified areas and issues pertinent to young people within the 10-24 age range that fall within, and which are related to, the remit of the Department. To support the development of the Youth Policy Framework, the Centre for Effective Services commissioned the Institute of Education (IoE), University of London, to complete an international literature review to identify optimum outcomes for young people in the areas of youth work. The starting point was to recognise the lack of research relating specifically to youth work and outcomes, and the need to know about leading thinking and emerging trends in this area of work. In particular, the Department of Children and Youth Affairs was keen to understand how such work could contribute to positive outcomes for young people, in what ways these outcomes might converge and in what ways they differ, and how these outcomes could be measured and assessed effectively.
