Intervening to improve outcomes for vulnerable young people : a review of the evidence /

by Walker, Janet | Great Britain. Department for Education | Donaldson, Cam.

Publisher: Newcastle Upon Tyne, U.K. Newcastle University 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Great Britain. Department for Education. Research Report ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2011 This research report was commissioned before the new UK Government took office on 11 May 2010. As a result the content may not reflect current Government policy and may make reference to the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) which has now been replaced by the Department for Education (DFE). SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Concerns about the number of young people who fail to reach their potential at school, or get into trouble, or are not in education, employment or training (NEET), underpin the continuing commitment to end child poverty in the UK by 2020, and the Coalition Government's pledge to increase the focus on supporting the neediest families and those with multiple problems. A strong policy commitment to improving the life chances of vulnerable young people has in recent years led to the testing of a number of initiatives. In December 2009, Professors Janet Walker and Cam Donaldson were tasked with reviewing the evidence from the national evaluations of ten of these initiatives1 so as to draw out the implications for future policy and practice with respect to vulnerable young people and their families. The focus in all the programmes reviewed was on prevention and early intervention and on the provision of multi-agency support to tackle a range of risk factors in a young person's life. The programmes had complex and ambitious objectives and in some areas many overlapped and ran concurrently. Some young people and their families received interventions from several of the initiatives, making it difficult for programme evaluators to isolate the impact of any one programme or intervention.Availability: (1)

Overcoming school failure : policies that work : OECD project description /

by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2010 Bibliography : p. 30-32Summary: School failure penalises a child for life. The child who leaves school without qualifications faces weaker job prospects, lower income throughout working life and a smaller pension in retirement. The same child is also less likely to take up further learning opportunities and less able to participate on an equal basis in the civic and social aspects of modern society. Educational failure imposes very high costs to society. It limits the capacity for our economies to produce, grow and innovate, damages social cohesion and imposes additional costs on public budgets to deal with the consequences of school failure - increased criminality, higher public health spending, public assistance, etc.Availability: (1)
