The Centre for Analysis of Youth Transitions – ADEPIS

The Centre for Analysis of Youth Transitions initially sponsored by the Department for Education and led by the Institute for Fiscal Studies came to an end in 2013.

We are now pleased to announce that the research centre will, from April 2015, be integrated within, and further developed through the Alcohol and Drug Education and Prevention Information Service (ADEPIS).

ADEPIS received joint Government funding to further embed expert advice and develop evidence-based tools for local practice in prevention and education.

At present, all existing CAYT related Impact Studies and reports have been transferred to the current website, from which you can search according to publication type, research area, and other criteria.

Between April 2015 and March 2016 we aim to:

  • Deliver regional seminars aimed at exploring existing CAYT programmes, benefits, and opportunities for implementation. This will provide practitioners with a better understanding of existing programmes, resources needed for implementation and delivery, as well as the opportunity to gather useful information by meeting programme developers and potential commissioners who already implemented/trialled the programmes in the past.
  • Undertake quality assessment of programme evaluations for newly developed programmes to be added to the CAYT repository.
