Please browse our case studies to find out how we combine research techniques to maximise the return on your investment. We treat each project as unique and will propose an approach, based on your objectives and our experience.
Be Enterprising aims to support young people who are interested in becoming self-employed and require help to test their ideas, write business plans, start their own businesses or achieve other education, training or work goals. It targets young people aged 18 – 30, some of whom are ex-offenders, in care or leaving care, or low achievers.
At the height of the financial crisis in 2009 Qa investigated how much young people knew about money, their attitudes to saving, and financial institutions in general. Since young people are often reluctant to take part in research, it was decided that the best strategy was to approach them at an event for under-eighteens held at ‘Embrace’ nightclub in Sheffield.
Identifying at risk children and young people and intervening to offer them better life chances has been a critical part of the social policy agenda since Youth Matters was announced in 2005. Five years on, research has helped one of our clients to understand best practice in this field.
Yorkshire Forward invested £2.5m in seven Prince’s Trust programmes from 2006 – 2009. As part of a larger impact evaluation study Qa were asked to conduct research with some of the young people who took part in these programmes.
What does ‘youth leadership’ mean to organisations which promote this aspiration and young people who are their target audience? Research conducted for the Prince’s Trust on behalf of the National Body for Youth Leadership (NBYL) consortium set out to find the answer.
