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 have created a new Project Manager role who will co-ordinate the Centre’s work on its main practice development projects, focused on high quality and responsive delivery, connecting with frontline youth work practice, and building partnerships. The Project Manager will also nurture key relationships with the Centre’s regional and national networks, and play an active role in the development and refinement of our programme offer in a cycle of continuous improvement.
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.
Generation Change is today transferring its Impact Accelerator programme to the Centre for Youth Impact, in order to support the creation of a more joined up and meaningful approach to learning and improvement in the youth sector.
We’re pleased to announce the launch of a programme of pilot activities to test and refine a training curriculum for use across our Regional Impact Networks. This is a key part of growing our practice development ‘offer’ for youth organisations across England (and maybe further afield!): our aim is to provide freely available learning materials which are high quality, accessible and can be delivered in a variety of peer to peer contexts.
