This course is designed for people with prior practical research/ evaluation experience, although not necessarily with children and young people, and who expect to manage and/or directly work on research or evaluation projects with children and young people.
The course will be delivered jointly by Berni Graham and Dr Louca Mai Brady, both senior researchers with extensive experience of conducting research and evaluation with children and young people. They have delivered this and other courses for the SRA since 2010. They are joint authors of Social Research with Children and Young People (2018). Both previously worked together as researchers at the National Children’s Bureau (NCB) Research Centre and in recent years have collaborated on research and evaluation projects for the NSPCC, Action for Children and NCB.
Dr Louca-Mai Brady is a Senior Research Fellow at UCL and independent researcher, trainer and facilitator with particular interests in participative and inclusive research methods, health research, and the involvement of children and young people in research. She is editor and co-author of: Embedding Young People's Participation in Health Services: New Approaches (2020), which is based on her doctoral research.
