Abstract

Work with young people covers a broad range of practice and takes place in a wide range of settings. It includes work with young people in formal settings, such as schools and colleges, as well as informal, community-based settings. Drawing on their own experiences of practice, which includes working as youth workers in schools, the authors explore ways in which practitioners can draw on ideas and approaches associated with informal education to support young people's learning and development, whatever setting of context they might be working in.
