Exciting news! We are going to be working with Birmingham University on a research project to evaluate the impact of our Working for Marcus programme on CSE. The research project will be run by Dr Juliane Kloess, who is a Lecturer in Forensic Psychology, and Dr Catherine Hamilton-Giachritsis, a Reader in Clinical Psychology at the University of Bath. We met with Juliane last year when we met to discuss their research to help our understanding of online grooming and to inform the development of our scripts and workshops.
We have always evaluated our work however this is a fantastic opportunity to get external evaluation and to really look at what young people think about and gain from our work.
This research project will take place in schools in Birmingham later in the year. This is an exciting opportunity to get some external evaluation and it is hoped that there will be a follow up to look at the longitudinal impact of the theatre in education programme.
