This blog is co-authored by Bethia McNeil, our Chief Executive, and Ed Anderton, our Acting Director of Practice Development. In it, they share some reflections about the use of cost-benefit analysis in the youth sector, with reference to programmes such as the National Citizen Service, and the Youth Investment Fund.
The Centre for Youth Impact is recruiting…. again. The more eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that we appear to have been doing a lot of recruitment recently. We’re not looking to expand the Centre to the size of a couple of 11-a-side football teams though; it’s just that we haven’t got it quite right yet. We’ve been out to recruit twice since December, and on neither occasion did we make an appointment. It’s unlikely that we’ll ever know the precise reasons why (always a frustration for a researcher!), but we’ve spent a fair bit of time reflecting as we prepare to go out to recruit again.
Our monthly newsletter collects news, events, research and blogs from the Centre, our networks and practitioners and organisations around the world. Sign-up here
