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:

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.
