About the Project
The position of youth work in Scotland has been strengthened by bringing it into statute (Scottish Govt., 2013) and by integrating it into core education policy, as part of Curriculum for Excellence, which seeks ‘to build and strengthen effective partnerships between schools and youth work’ (Education Scotland, 2013, p.1). This brings opportunities for new collaborative practices in schools. This study seeks to generate new knowledge and understanding of the potentialities for youth work in schools by asking young people, teachers and youth workers about their experiences and their perceptions on the impacts these bring.
Built on the concept of curriculum as process, ‘the focus of educational youth work is concerned with the processes which young people negotiate in order to grow in personal and social development’ (Milburn et al.1995, p.9) It is anticipated that, rather than pathologising young people who do not achieve in school, analysis will construct an asset based model for integrating youth work with school education.
