Description

Children and Young People in Health and Education: Wellbeing Barriers and What Can be Done About Them

A ninety-minute seminar featuring two presentations; one discussing results from a Health survey that estimates social, emotional and behavioural difficulties for children aged 3-14 years, the other discussing recent work undertaken by the Education Review Office (ERO) on the Contribution of Resilience in Children’s Learning.

Speakers:

Linda Pannekoek is a Senior Advisor and researcher at the Ministry of Health. Her work largely focusses on child health, development and wellbeing. In this presentation, Linda will give a short background on her work using the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) based on data from the New Zealand Health Survey. The results from the SDQ in the Health Survey provide nationally representative estimates of social, emotional and behavioural difficulties for children aged 3-14 years.

Jason Timmins is Manager of Insights at the Education Review Office (ERO) and uses data to measure the performance of the education sector, school and early learning services. Jason has researched a wide range of social and economic policy topics, including child poverty, minimum wage, skill shortages, transitions off a benefit and transience. His presentation will share the findings of recent research undertaken by ERO, Contribution of Resilience in Children’s Learning.
