The Centre for Youth Impact is excited to be testing a new tool for measuring young people’s social and emotional learning. The tool - the Adult Rating of Youth Behaviour (ARYB) - is based on the observations of practitioners as part of their work with young people. It explores the kind of behaviours that young people show and engage in whilst they are in youth settings. We’re looking for a small number of youth organisations to work with us to review the tool thoroughly and help get it ready for pilot.
We are pleased to share the final learning report for the Project Oracle London Arts Cohort. It summaries the learning journey of arts organisations who took part in a programme of evaluation support delivered by Project Oracle in 2017-18, closing with a Learning Event in April 2019.
The Centre for Youth Impact is committed to working collaboratively to progress thinking and practice in impact measurement in youth work and provision for young people. Our vision is for all young people to have access to high quality programmes and services that improve their life chances. We believe that embedded approaches to more meaningful impact measurement are critical in achieving our vision.
We need a new Research Assistant to join the team to support our work across our research and practice development projects, and our communications. The post will contribute both capacity and skills to the Centre’s dynamic team – particularly offering support to the Director of Research, Design and Insight in delivering a number of key strategic pieces of work. This is a fixed term post for 12 months.
We are pleased to open bookings for our annual conference, The Gathering 2019.
This year, we’re doing things differently. Following each of our four previous conferences, we’ve received feedback that we’ve found difficult to reconcile: some attendees want smaller, more practical sessions that will provide them with actionable approaches to take back to their organisations. Some other attendees want deeper, longer plenary sessions that cover more ideas and allow them to hear a wider range of voices. We’ve historically tried to respond to all perspectives, but with a sense that we never quite manage to balance a diverse range of needs and wants.
So, this year, we’re going to do both: we’re separating our conference from break-out sessions for the first time, and holding a day long practical workshop on Tuesday 5 November. The next day, on Wednesday 6 November, we’re holding our annual conference, which will focus on creating space for the most exciting and thought-provoking ideas through a series of plenary sessions. Both days will be held at Toynbee Hall, a beautiful and vibrant venue with a history of creating space for powerful conversations.
We’d love it if you joined us for both days, of course, but we recognise that some people will find one of the days more relevant than the other. We’re offering tickets for each day separately, and for the two days (with a discount), including an informal get together on the evening of the first day.
