Event description

Description

This one day workshop provides an introduction to outcomes-focused and evidence-based practice, for those who work with children and/or young people. The workshop has been developed to help child and youth workers in NSW to prepare for the changes being introduced as part of the TEI reform process.

The program will address the following issues:
• What do we mean by an “outcomes focus”?
• How does an outcomes focus differ to what we have done in the past?
• What do we mean by “evidence-based practice”?
• How do I apply these ideas in my work with children and/or young people?
• What are the benefits of shifting our focus towards outcomes and evidence-based approaches?
• Where can I find more information about these ideas?

At the end of this training program, participants will be able to:
• Explain what an outcomes-focused approach is, and how this differs from measuring inputs and
outputs
• Describe what is meant by “evidence-based practice”
• Discuss some ways that these new ideas can be applied in planning and delivering programs for
children and/or young people, and outline some practical examples of this
• Outline some practical steps that they can take in the coming weeks and months to begin
shifting towards an outcomes-focused approach to their work
• Describe some useful sources of information to assist in developing these ideas

A wide range of methods are used within the program, including presentations, small and large group discussion, individual reflection, reading, action planning, case studies and scenarios.
