From June 2020 we will interview SW!TCH stakeholders to understand how the SW!TCH Lives programme was designed and has been implemented. We will also explore views about what has worked well during this process, as well as particular challenges that have been experienced.
Mentors / youth workers
We will speak to the youth workers/mentors who deliver the workshops and 1:1 mentor sessions from June 2020 about their experiences of the programme delivery. We will also explore views about what has worked well during the delivery process, challenges that may have been experienced, and areas for improvement. Observations in relation to benefits or challenges for the young people who have taken part in the intervention will also be explored.
Teachers / school leads
We will interview teachers in schools who have been involved in organising the implementation of the SW!TCH Lives programme in their respective school. During interviews with teachers we will explore their experiences of working with the intervention provider to implement the intervention in their school and their views on how SW!TCH Lives has been delivered so far. Observations in relation to benefits or challenges for the young people who have taken part in the intervention will also be explored. These interviews will take place from June 2020.
Research activities with young people will take place during the academic year 2020/2021 and will include:
- Group discussions about the SW!TCH Lives workshops
- Interviews about the mentoring sessions
