EE Revisited Introduction

Author: John Rose 2017

Introduction to a series of nine papers taken from a research Ph.D. They are focused on data about the maintained Youth Service in Wales, collected and analysed from 2002 to 2007 when the Youth Service was first being directed by the Welsh Government policy ‘Extending Entitlement’.  These are being published in 2017 as there are issues which need to be considered due to the reinvigorated political interest in Extending Entitlement. These papers are intended to be a reminder that the translation of Extending Entitlement policy into practice was not a positive experience for the Youth Service in Wales and that there are inherent dangers that a refreshed Extending Entitlement will have just as many negative connotations unless we learn from, and respond to, the lessons from the past. The papers are: 

Extending Entitlement Revisited:

  • Paper 1: Setting the scene
  • Paper 2: How was the evidence found and analysed?
  • Paper 3: The needs of young people and the Maintained Youth Service response
  • Paper 4: What did politicians want from the Maintained Youth Service?
  • Paper 5: How Knowledgeable were those working in the Maintained Youth Service of its discrete identity during the time of the Extending Entitlement launch?
  • Paper 6: Did the Maintained Youth Service have the tools to meet the priorities of Extending Entitlement?
  • Paper 7: What was happening in the Maintained Youth Service at the time of Extending Entitlement?
  • Paper 8:  What did the Maintained Youth Service do after Extending Entitlement and how was this measured?
  • Paper 9:  Findings and recommendations

Paper 7:

This paper sets out to provide an overview of how the maintained Youth Service in Wales was organised during early years of the 2000’s as this was identified by:  

  1. the time full and part-time workers spent in direct contact with young people;
  2. the age, gender and academic attainment of those young people using the maintained Youth Service;
  3. the methods used by workers to identify the needs of the young people with whom they come into contact; and
  4. the identified needs of those young people using the maintained Youth Service.

Paper 5:

It is the intention of this paper to provide an answer about the level of collective knowledge and understanding of the purposes and associated principles and values of the maintained Youth Service held by those who work within it. This will be done to enable a decision to be made about whether the maintained Youth Service, as a clearly bounded group (or groups) of people interacting together to achieve a particular goal (or goals), is meeting the needs of young people and the requirements of government policy in a formally structured and co-ordinated way.
