PODCAST : Children/Young People’s Journey into Further Education. What are the challenges they face?

Harrow Youth Justice Service (June 2021)



The podcast explores the relationship between education and impact on children/young people’s desistance journey. The podcast looks to consider if further education and training institutions are providing children/young people in the Youth Justice System consistent and fair access to post-16 education.


Creating a podcast offered the opportunity to give a voice to organisations involved in supporting children/young people into further education. The podcast allows for healthy and progressive debate and can be utilised in many ways, from supporting organisations to consider their own procedures for training purposes to challenging the status quo.


The podcast can be used to examine whether a child/young person is receiving consistent and fair treatment from further education providers, whilst also bringing attention to the importance of collaborative working between organisations.


Finally, the podcast can act as a prompt for YOTs to consider how much support is given to children/young people regarding their rights and responsibilities under the law.
