YOUTH WORK AND QUALITY ASSESSMENT -THE self AND peer ASSESSMENT MODEL
During the past decenniums the public administrative culture has been changing with increased cuts in public spending and introduction of efficiency and quality tools. A recent example of the latter is the EU Expert Group report Quality Youth Work (2015). This publication first outlines the European debates on the quantitative measurement tools in youth work and then goes on to frame a role for peerquality assessment. It argues that the model presented (SPAM) is able to meet much of the criticism launched during ‘the measurement boom’. The second part describes the application of the tool and also includes the concrete quality criteria and their grades.This publication is a part of a project called Laatua nuorisotyöhön (Quality Youth Work) and it is produced in co-operation between City of Lappeenranta Youth Services and the Kanuuna Network. It is funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture in Finland.
