I could only get along to the evening reception for the National Youth Work Summit, organised by YouthLink Scotland
Chief Executive Jim Sweeney summarised the day. He said something which I’m sure is a common phrase for youth workers but hearing it fresh sounded like a great challenge for schools to bear in mind when designing their senior phase curriculum:
“We need to engage with young people on their own territory and on their own terms” (or at least that what it sounded like to me)
Easier said than done!
