by Carlin, Eric | The Foyer Federation.

Publisher: London, U.K. The Foyer Federation 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: October 2010 Bibliography : pp. 18-19Summary: The report Feeling Good: Supporting resilience in young people in Foyers in England, summarises the findings on a research project on resilience, in particular the factors that build resilience in young people, and the impact that this would have on the Foyer as a physical environment. The qualitative research project was conducted in five Foyers across England and the focus was to find out from Foyer residents what they believe would contribute to helping them develop and maintain resilience in the face of adversity and to make recommendations so that Foyers can reference their practice against the evidence base from academic literature and the views and perceptions of residents. The report includes a summary of recommendations which will help Foyers and the Foyer Federation reference their service provision and practice to the literature and young people's assessments of important resilience-encouraging components. The findings will be of interest to all agencies which provide services for young people. (The Foyer Federation summary)Availability: (1)

Inclusion through employability : youth work approaches to unemployment /

by Goldring, Ian | SALTO Youth Inclusion Resource Centre | Guidoum, Yamina.

Publisher: Brussel, Belgium SALTO Youth Inclusion Resource Centre 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2011 Bibliography : pp. 53-56 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Young people's experiences of employment are at present, and have been for a decade or so, characterised by precariousness, a hollowing out of opportunity for quality employment, a lengthening yo-yo trajectory in and out of short-term work, unemployment and training or education, and growing ranks of 'NEETs' (Not in Education, Employment or Training) or socalled 'Zero Status' young people across Europe, not engaged in any kind of work or learning and without any significant personal project for the future. This report presents the key findings from a review of recent literature and research on youth employment and social exclusion, and a review of some successful approaches when addressing unemployment in excluded youth. The report is meant to help practitioners trying to develop and carry out successful actions to support young people, who are excluded or at risk of exclusion, in accessing employment and improving their relation to the labour market. Obviously there are differences between member states both at national and local levels, and as such the report does not intend to provide complete solutions on how to increase the employability of excluded youth but rather provides youth workers with key elements they need to consider when intervening with young people. The report is particularly directed to the stakeholders and partners of the SALTO network and Youth in Action national agencies, to help them act more effectively to bring young people with fewer opportunities towards a job.Availability: (1)

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)
