Centre for Analysis of Youth Transitions

CAYT is a DfE sponsored research centre that brings together leading educationalists and social scientists from the Institute for Fiscal Studies, the Institute of Education, and the National Centre for Social Research.

CAYT is undertaking cutting edge empirical research on the full range of issues around "youth transitions". The work is organised under the following themes: education and employment; risky behaviours and positive activities, and disadvantaged and vulnerable groups.


CAYT is organising a workshop on evaluating the impact of youth programmes, 18 December 2013 at the Institute for Fiscal Studies. This workshop will introduce participants to the principles of impact evaluation and provide guidance on how youth programmes and services can best be evaluated. Speakers will be confirmed shortly.

See here for further information.

CAYT can offer support for organisations who would like advice on how best to evaluate their programmes. If you are interested in receiving our bespoke research and free evaluation consultancy service from a qualified postgraduate researcher then please email us.
