Youth Work Outcomes

A framework of expected outcomes for youth work, outlining a two-tier reporting system which will generate robust and proportionate data gained from all types of DE-funded youth work provision.

This paper gives a brief overview of a Framework of expected outcomes for youth work, outlining a two-tier reporting system which will generate robust and proportionate data gained from all types of DE-funded youth work provision. The Framework of outcomes offers the potential to provide a unifying and common focus within a diverse sector, strengthening the capacity of the sector to collectively demonstrate its achievements. 

The paper also presents the view that, far from being a separate ‘add-on’, the Framework of outcomes should become a central element of the needs-based planning cycles. Similarly, there is scope for the Framework to provide a common thread which runs throughout key decision-making and accountability processes within the service.
