The Education and Training Inspectorate was commissioned by the Department of Education, in collaboration with the Executive Office, to evaluate the effectiveness of the Together: Building a United Community Camps Programme (2019/20). The camps are cross-community and encourage participation from young people aged 11 to 19 years from different racial and ethnic backgrounds.

 

The evaluation reports on the main findings from ETI visits to a representative sample of urban, rural, schools, community, sports and faith-based camps visited during the period June to December 2019 and evaluates the effectiveness of the programme against its outcomes. The report also examines the leadership and management of the programme, data provided by the Education Authority and makes comment on the safeguarding procedures.
