This course builds on the popular foundation-level course on research with children and young people and allows a more in-depth and practical focus on methodological and ethical realities and challenges, as well as taking a participative approach.

So this workshop will delve deeper into how to plan, develop and adapt approaches and methods, for example by age, topic, situation and other contexts.
As well as providing input from their wide-ranging expertise, the tutors will facilitate discussions and encourage participants to share examples and collaboratively explore potential solutions. For this reason, participants are encouraged to bring issues around a research/ evaluation project you are planning or doing with children and young people, especially any methodological or ethical challenges.
By the end of this workshop participants will:
