Survey about personal and professional impact on participants of Salto-Youth EuroMed Trainings: 2008/2013

This impact study aimed to address the following question: ‘To what extent have SALTO EuroMed training activities had a positive impact on personal and professional development in a Euro-Mediterranean context from 2008 until 2013’.

Researcher: Alex Scott.

From this research question, 11 different hypotheses were formed which would give the basis for analysing any empirical data which could be quantified to allow for interpretation and an answering of the research question. In addressing these hypotheses, data analysis from the two questionnaires focussed on several specific demographic factors; regional origin (it is widely acknowledged that there is a significant development gap between EU Programme countries and countries of the Maghreb and Mashreq regions), gender (as a fundamental aim of both EuroMed Youth and YiA programmes, gender equality was one of the most important demographics to be compared) and experience in youth work (to assess how experience influences what competences are developed). Furthermore two specific areas of EuroMed Youth work were also given special attention; TOTEM (because of its relevance for multipliers and more strongly professionally orientated objectives) and EVS (due to SALTO EuroMed beginning the accreditation process. Ultimately the study took on an empirical nature and used the data to either prove or disprove the 11 hypotheses which would then give the indication as to whether SALTO EuroMed training activities had a positive impact on personal and professional development of the individuals who responded. The data results and subsequent interpretations are treated as representative of the EuroMed region and are hence seen by this study as a valid source of data for which can be used to answer the study’s principal research question.
