developing interests which would broaden the horizons of young people

persönliche Entwicklung / Erwerb von sozialen und personalen Kompetenzen

There was some evidence that the young people who participated in OTS activities had developed interests which would broaden their horizons. Many young people had been given the opportunity to learn about and try new things, and in many instances, these experiences engaged young people with activities that might improve their skills or benefit their career. OTS staff also described the way in which activities were designed to develop a wider awareness, using, for example, events such as International Women’s Day and Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender History Month to provide information and instigate discussion about issues such as sexuality and sexual identity.

Evaluierung der Aktivität

A three year evaluation was built into the RESPECT bid in order that the individual, community and societal benefits of the programme could be quantified and evidenced. The evaluation employed a range of research tools, methods of data collection and analytical methodologies including individual interviews and focus groups with young people and staff; Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaires completed by the young people who took up a place on the course; in-depth questionnaires completed by their support workers and teachers; the analysis of progress sheets that were maintained by staff; graduation surveys completed by parents and carers; observation of activities; RESPECT referrals forms; Social Return on Investment.
