Transcript of Effective Practice Online Seminar Series

Online Seminar Series
Commissioned by

This Effective Practice Online Seminar Series is a component of the Youth Justice Board’s (YJB) effective practice activity, specifically aimed at promoting the use of evidence and evaluation in youth justice.
All seminars in this series support the launch of the ‘Innovation and Evaluation in Youth Justice’ materials that are designed to provide youth justice practitioners with advice and information about programme development and evaluation.
The series does not
promote the YJB’s vision or specific approach to effective practice as such. However, it covers concepts and discusses ideas that we all agree are important and essential in achieving the best outcomes for children and young people.
The aim of these seminars (or 'webinars’) is to equip practitioners and commissioners with the skills and expertise to use evidence and evaluation methods in their work in order to grow an evidence base specific to the youth justice system.
The Social Research Unit at Dartington was commissioned by the YJB as independent experts to deliver this series of webinars.
