JET is busy with the establishment of a Curriculum Team
and building consensus on a Curriculum Framework. There are a number of
key research activities that will underpin this process:
An awareness of the local economy.
A profile of the target market.
An assessment of service providers in the area.
Strategy & Tactics has been commissioned to undertake
the profile of the target market.
Using a mixture of methods - which include analysing
existing quantitative data and gathering primary qualitative data - the
Learner Profile will address the following objectives:
Providing an understanding of the social context of youth development.
Profiling the target market in terms of skills level, work experience,
qualifications and aspirations for the future.
Reflecting on the proposed curriculum on the basis of the above two objectives.
