Information on taking part

Evaluation of the North Yorkshire Partners in Practice Programme (including No Wrong Door Programme)

As part of the research, NatCen would like to carry out interviews with a range of people involved in the programme. This includes:

  • Programme staff - This includes individuals leading and/or coordinating the extensions as well as delivery staff
  • Delivery partners – Staff in other organisations working with North Yorkshire County Council to deliver the programme.  This includes (i) school staff working with young children and (ii) business, further education (FE) and higher education (HE) representatives offering training/employment opportunities to care leavers
  • Parents and carers of children and young people who are part of both extensions
  • Children and young people involved in both extensions

Why take part?

The study is very important, as the Department for Education (DfE) would like to understand how the No Wrong Door programme (‘the programme’) works and whether it is making a difference to the young people that are involved. The research findings will be used to review and develop the programme.

We appreciate that individuals have a busy schedule, but we do hope those invited for the interviews will take part. The interview gives people a chance to voice their views and could help shape thinking around the programme. We know people’s time is precious, but our work really does make a difference.

What’s involved?

NatCen Social Research would like to interview a range of individuals between May and September 2019. The interviews will take place on the phone and/or face-to-face and last between 45 to 60 minutes, including introductions and questions at the end. The interview would be with a researcher from NatCen and happen at a time and date convenient for participants.

It is important to highlight that taking part is completely voluntary, and individuals are free to change their mind at any time. The discussion will cover your thoughts on and experiences of the programme and your views on how it can be improved going forward.  Voluntary participation also means that you do not have to answer any questions you do not want to during the interview.
