Description

Insights from Children and Young People's Education: Quantitative and qualitative research into educational experiences

A ninety-minute seminar featuring two presentations; one looking at quantitative research from the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI) on children's educational engagement, the other sharing insights from conversations with children and young people in care about their experiences in education.

Speakers:

Dr. Duncan McCann works in the Analytics and Insights team within the Evidence Centre at Oranga Tamariki. Duncan will discuss quantitative research from the IDI on children’s educational engagement and achievement for differing levels of care and protection experience.

Dr. Karen Harris is a Senior Advisor in the Voices of Children and Young People team at Oranga Tamariki. Karen is also a registered Educational Psychologist and has worked in Education for 20 years. She will discuss a project named ‘The Educational Experiences of Children in Care’ which provides insights from children and young people, caregivers, social workers, and educators relating to children’s experiences, achievements, engagements, and outcomes in education. The insights have wider implications for policy and practice and provide a unique insight into children’s experiences of care and protection and education systems.

This is the ninth in a series of seminars hosted by the Oranga Tamariki Evidence Centre Te Pokapū Taunakitanga. We partner with a range of social sector agencies to present current research and thinking.
