Introduction The Every Child Matters Green Paper sets out 5 key outcomes for all young people. The NYA define the 5 ECM outcomes as meaning that young people: • Are healthy; enjoy good physical and mental health and adopt a healthy lifestyle stay safe; • Are protected from harm and neglect and develop resilience • Enjoy and achieve; get the most out of life now and gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed for the future • Make a positive contribution; are involved with the community and society • Have the resources and skills for economic well-being, and are not prevented by economic disadvantage from achieving their full potential. Enjoying and achieving is central to the ethos of KYS: Kent Youth Service is about supporting and encouraging all young people to meet together in a secure environment, to have fun and to form friendships. Young people from a broad and diverse variety of backgrounds will be offered the opportunity to gain confidence and the ability to face the challenges of life, to be active citizens in their community and to help work towards a society that is caring and free. Youth services and youth workers make a contribution to achieving the ‘enjoy & achieve’ outcome through informal learning and providing a range of voluntary learning activities that evidence young people’s journey and the youth work process through recorded and accredited outcomes. The 2008 JAR comments on the ‘very significant role’ played in young people’s development by KYS.
Introduction The Ofsted report commented that ‘young people enjoy taking part in youth work and make good progress in their personal and social development…youth workers understand how their work contributes to the Every Child Matters outcomes…youth workers provide positive, sometimes inspirational, role models which motivate young people to achieve and widen their horizons’. Young people enjoy their engagement with KYS and, through that, are encouraged to achieve by gaining recorded and accredited outcomes. KYS regard RECORDED outcomes as: • Providing evidence of distance travelled from a starting point and following the youth work process to a learning achievement or other end product. • Provide evidence of the benefit to the young person • Be evidenced by a youth worker • Make a meaningful, subjective judgment on a young person’s achievement given their background and skill level • Provide evidence for Ofsted in line with the framework for inspection ‘Standards of young people’s achievement and the quality of youth work practice’ http://www.ofsted.gov.uk/Ofsted-home/Forms-and-guidance/Browse-all-by/Other/General/Framework-2005-Framework-for-the-inspection-of-schools-in-England-from-September-2005 For more information on recorded and accredited outcomes, please see the curriculum document and the NYA’s BVPI documents, available here: www.youthworkunit.com/.../Best%20Value%20Performance%20Indicators.doc
Introduction EXAMPLES OF GOOD PRACTICE • A range of excellent tick box sheets to help with observations and recorded outcomes for a huge range of activities are available on the disk included with the curriculum pack. These draw on examples of good practice from across the country. • C@fe-IT uses the standard recorded outcome sheet but cross references each observation and recording with the Huskins model of youth participation: • Sk8side uses accreditation to monitor and evaluate distance travelled for the young person and the youth worker, using the process as a way of evidencing excellent youth work. For more examples of how youth workers across the county are gaining recorded and accredited outcomes through excellent youth work practice please see the curriculum document. Young people achieve through enjoyment, particularly if the environment you offer is secure and supportive. By building accreditation into your practice from the outset you can ensure that it becomes a part of the youth work process and the best way to record distance travelled for young people and to evidence your own good practice.
ICEBREAKERS & GAMES SHARING INFORMATION NEWS: in pairs, exchange 3 pieces of news – family news, local news and worldwide news. Each partner feeds back about the other’s news stories FACT FINDING: in pairs, find out 6 facts about your partner (these can be set by the leader e.g. toothbrush colour, address, mum’s first name etc) then feed them back to the group SHOCK & SURPRISE: in pairs, tell each other about a pleasant surprise you’ve had and an unpleasant shock, then feedback about the other’s experiences. If you haven’t experienced something yourself, you may recount someone else’s experience. PROBLEMS: in pairs, tell each other an imaginary problem and a real one. Each partner has to work out which is true and false. This can also be used with a group. ALL CHANGE: split the group into pairs, then get them to sit opposite each other to form 2 circles. Give each pair about 30 seconds to exchange news then call ‘all change’. The inner circle moves round one and the outer circle stays still. Repeat till everyone has spoken to everyone (if you can’t make 2 circles, make 2 lines and ask the line on the left to move along one when you call ‘all change’) GROUP ICEBREAKERS CATEGORIES: get the group to move around and tell them you’ll ask them to get into groups based on categories. Start with categories with 2 responses e.g. do you like Michael Jackson’s music (yes/no) then go on to categories like shoe size, eye colour, favourite colour with multiple answers. This icebreaker is particularly good for sessions around diversity.
ICEBREAKERS & GAMES HIGH 5: Sit the group in a circle and read out a list of ‘have you evers’ e.g. have you ever done karaoke, have you ever ridden a horse, have you ever been in an aeroplane, have you ever met a famous person etc. (try and tailor the ‘have you evers’ to the group you’re working with). When a young person has had that experience, they must run into the centre and high 5 anyone else who is there. If you have time encourage some of the young people to share their experiences. Again, very useful for diversity sessions. PILE UP: a variation on the above. Have the group sit on chairs. Let anyone ask a question and, when you answer yes, you move one chair to the right. Obviously, this will cause some pile ups as people don’t move. A good physical ice breaker/deinhibitor. LOST: Tell the group they are lost on a desert island. Ask each one in turn to say what object they would like to have and why – doesn’t have to be realistic e.g. you might want to bring you mp3 player/dog/favourite book. Now divide the group randomly into smaller groups and ask them to combine their objects to survive. CLUMP: ask the group to get up and move around then shout out numbers (obviously tailor these to the size of the group!). Young people must get into groups of that number as quickly as possible – any who don’t are out. ROLL OF HONOUR: pass a toilet roll around the group and tell each person to take as many sheets as they like. When the roll has been passed round the entire group, ask them to count up how many sheets they have – now the good/bad news. For each sheet they have to tell the rest of the group a fact about themselves. PHYSICAL GAMES PASS THE PULSE: divide the group into 2 teams and ask them to stand in line back to back. The person at the end of the line holds a small object (ball/pen/coin). At some distance from the end of the line place 2 wastepaper bins (or similar). To start the game the leader touches the first players in line on the shoulder at the same time. The players must then ‘pass a pulse’ (squeeze the hand of the next person in line) to the player holding the object.
ICEBREAKERS & GAMES PASS THE PULSE (cont.): As soon as they receive the pulse they must run to the bin and drop in their object. First team to do so wins. Play best of 5. ‘Pass the pulse’ is also a great focus/energiser exercise – simply get the group to sit in a circle, close their eyes and pass the pulse. See how fast you can get! BOBSLED: This needs room so best played if you have a sports hall. Divide the group into teams of 4-6 players and ask them to sit on the floor with their legs wrapped round the person in front. Mark a finish line on the floor and shout go – teams must move using their hands only. If teams break apart, they must regroup before they can continue. ART GAMES: LIVE SCULPTURE: collect scarps of material, bubble rap, buttons etc. Divide the groups into 3-4s. Tell the groups to use the materials to make living sculpture using one of the group as the model. TOILET PAPER SCULPTURE: works the same but with toilet rolls NATURE SCULPTURE: An outdoor activity – ask the groups to make an art work from things they can find in nature e.g. leaves, acorns, twigs For more ideas visit: http://wilderdom.com/games/Icebreakers.html http://www.mwls.co.uk/icebreakers/ http://www.icebreakers.ws/ http://www.eslflow.com/ICEBREAKERSreal.html http://www.youthworkideas.com/web/?q=node/2 http://www.jobs4youthwork.co.uk/rsc/icebreakers.htm http://www.ultimatecampresource.com/site/camp-activities/ice-breakers.html http://www.youthgroupgames.co.uk/ http://www.youthworker.org.uk/

A new holiday – ADD LINKS September 19th every year is International Talk Like A Pirate Day http://www.talklikeapirate.com/ Why? Because Dave Barry, a newspaper columnist, and his friends decided it was a good idea and it’s caught on worldwide. If you had to come up with a new public holiday, what would it be?
