Evaluierung der Aktivität
During the period from April to July 2011, inspectors visited six secondary schools and seven colleges with extensive volunteering activity taking place. They also visited six youth organisations located within the voluntary and charitable sector, and met with two national youth charities. The youth organisations visited targeted their work primarily on vulnerable young people. The Learner Panel provided further supporting evidence. Ofsted also received online feedback from 328 members of its children’s and young people’s panel. In addition three learner focus groups were conducted.
