2. The Process is the Product: Is There a Need for Measurement in Youth Work?

Author: Sean Gallagher and Tony Morgan, University of Ulster 2013

Description

The central tenet of this article is predicated upon a belief that there is a need to link both the formal with the informal/non -formal sectors without at any point compromising the strengths of either. The analysis within this article deconstructs the ideology and philosophy behind the perceived dominance of the formal sector over the informal youth work sector. It suggests that both worlds need not collide but that they can and should work more closely together in the interest of their common denominator, the development of young peoples’ potential. 

We also contend that youth work practice is qualitatively different from teaching and schooling and that the process used in youth work identifies that difference. We also contend that the inchoate nature of the youth work profession is militating against addressing some of these complex issues that are challenging the essential essence of youth work practice.

Author: Rob Norris, CWVYS 2013

Description

This paper seeks to provide a conceptual framework for answering two questions raised by the Welsh Government: what does the Welsh Government get for the funding it provides for the youth service (statutory and voluntary) and to what extent does the use of that funding help to achieve key objectives such as reductions in the number of young people not in education, training or employment.

Author: HMSO 1962

Description

In July 1961, the Minister set up a working party under the chairmanship of Mr. G. S. Bessey to consider the nature of the training which should be available to part-time youth leaders and assistants, both paid and voluntary, and to advise on the best ways of arranging such training. Their report, published in July 1962, took one stage further the study of the youth leader's job, and suggested a minimum professional skill needed, whether the leader worked full-time or part-time. The report identified a common element in the training required by part-time leaders of youth groups of all kinds, and recommended that local education authorities and local voluntary bodies should jointly organise basic courses incorporating this common element of training.
