Quality assurance

No centralized system exists for quality assurance of youth work.

Research and evidence supporting Youth Work

No evidence suggests that national authorities support research in youth work specifically. National authorities devote parts of the fiscal budget to youth research but that is not specific to youth work.

Participate Youth Work

No direct initiatives are made by the top-level authorities to involve young people in consultation specific to youth work. However, as stated in chapter 5.4 young people can have an impact on legislation through youth councils established at the local level. These may include the area of youth work but are not specifically directed towards it.

Smart youth work: youth work in the digital world

No top-level policies are in place to foster the application of digital technologies to youth work.
