CCfW: Listening to young people in secondary settings

21 June 2021

In July we’re publishing a report looking at secondary school councils in Wales. It will consider what makes a good school council and what challenges exist that make it more difficult for some young people to be heard.

Almost 7,000 young people have taken part in research, along with teachers and school governors, that the report in based on.

On the 6th of July Professor Sally Holland and her team will be leading an online session for secondary school leaders, governors and school council members. The aim of this free session is to give decision-makers in secondary schools the chance to speak directly with the Commissioner and her team to discuss findings, share their own experiences and develop key actions to prioritise participation within their setting.

It is important that young people feel they’re being listened to and to make sure they can participate in decisions that affect their lives. By attending this session we will be able to explore how effective participation ensures young people’s health and wellbeing and discuss key findings about secondary school councils.
