I’m currently undertaking some research for my dissertation and am looking for youth workers who can provide me with some insight to their practice. My dissertation is titled “Relational Youth Work: An Alternative to Outcome Based Models”.
Through an exploration of relational youth work, its effects on my practice, and by comparing it to youth work within the statutory sector, I hope to identify ways in which workers, agencies and policy makers can adopt a model of working with young people that fully embraces the values of informal education and empowers everyone involved in the process
In order to gauge how best to research the dissertation, I require the help of all you wonderful workers out there. Below is a simple questionnaire (hosted on Google Docs). Please could you take 5 minutes to fill it out and let me know your experience on recording outcomes in youth work.
If you have any further thoughts or questions, then please contact me through this site. Thank you in advance!
