Tom and Patrycja are set to become National Young Inspectors. Young Wales have recruited and will be training a National Team of Kitemark Inspectors. The National Children and Young People’s Participation Standards identify Seven Standards that all adults should be aware of when working with and engaging with children and young people in Wales;
2. IT’S YOUR CHOICE
3. NO DISCRIMINATION
5. YOU GET SOMETHING OUT OF IT
7. WORKING BETTER FOR YOU
These Standards help measure and promote the participation of children and young people in making decisions, planning and reviewing any action that will affect them.
Tom and Patrycja joined young people from across Wales in Wrexham in October and will attend training sessions on becoming a National Young Inspector throughout the year and they will have the opportunity to inspect organisations and services against the Standards. The Standards help organisations to measure and improve the quality of the process of children and young people’s participation.
Tom said that “being a National Young Kitemark Inspector is a great honour. I am one of the first 20 Inspectors in Wales and I hope to better many organisations in terms of the participation of children and young people. I can’t wait to get started”
