Abstract:
The aim of this research was to evaluate the success of a well established approach to help young people make positive life choices so that they take the right steps to make successful transitions from youth to adulthood. Around 20,000 young people participate in the Youth Achievement Award (YAA) programme each year. The YAA was developed by (a national) charity, UK Youth, and is an accredited, non-formal education programme which aims to help young people develop their social and personal skills, and build resilience and confidence. The YAAs links to Key Skills and Wider Key Skills acquisition and are accredited by ASDAN.
