Taking inspiration from the success of ‘TeacherTapp’, from tomorrow we will be using an adapted version of our existing ‘Asking Good Questions’ survey tool to ask youth practitioners to respond to one key multiple-choice question each week. This platform allows users to register and receive immediate feedback on how others have responded, as well as a follow-up ‘final score’ via email once the survey has closed, and reminders to complete each weekly survey.
We will be opening a fresh survey question each Friday, along with publishing a light-touch analysis on the previous week’s question. We’d like questions to be suggested by peers and partners – this is very much a collaborative effort in order to highlight your priorities and needs as practitioners, through this crisis period and beyond.
Our initial question will be:
‘Other than more funding, what do you need most, right now, to help you make a positive difference for young people?’
The survey will be available here, and will go live at 14:00 tomorrow - Friday 8 May - and will be open until 17:00 the following Thursday 14 May.
We are pleased to launch the first version of a national data standard for the youth sector in the UK. This is a set of standard questions designed specifically for organisations working with and for young people. Following examples such as 360 Giving and the Social Economy Data Lab, this standard is being developed to gather consistent data, and generate shared insight across the youth sector as a whole.
If your organisation works with and for young people, please complete the form, it should take you no more than seven minutes.
