“Cracking the impact nut” or How the Youth Investment Fund learning and impact strand responds to the challenges of evaluation in open access provision
This blog has been written Matthew Hill, Head of Research and Learning at the Centre for Youth Impact.
Pippa Knott is Head of Networks at the Centre for Youth Impact. She is part of a small team that has established and developed the Centre, and has talked increasingly about creating the conditions for meaningful impact measurement. This requires shifts in culture and behaviour as much as developments in methodological design and research tools.
Will Millard is a Senior Associate at the education and youth think and action tank, LKMco. LKMco works across the education, youth and policy sectors, helping organisations develop and evaluate projects for young people, and carrying out academic and policy research. LKMco seeks to help practitioners and organisations working with young people develop and use stronger evidence to help enhance their impact.
The Centre for Youth Impact and LKMco are both part of (overlapping) evidence movements, and want to play our part in helping people across our respective sectors engage with evidence and promote its place in improving service design, quality, and sustainability.
