Care experienced youths’ experiences of sport/PA and implications for pedagogical practice
Rachel Sandford and Oliver Hooper, Loughborough University
Date: Thursday 23rd January
Venue: Moray House School of Education and Sport, St Leonard’s Land, Room 3.16
Time: 5pm – 7pm, tea and coffee will be provided from 5pm and the presentation will begin at around 5.15pm.
This interactive session will look to outline findings from a recent research project that examined the sport/physical activity experiences of care experienced youth in England. It will share some of the perceived benefits associated with sport/PA participation, as well as some of the challenges that are faced with regard to access and engagement. Key factors that shape care experienced youths’ engagement with sport/PA will also be discussed and some implications for pedagogical practice considered. In this respect, concept cartoons developed with young people in the study will be used to help share their stories and generate discussion. The session will close by considering the potential of concept cartoons to act as a pedagogical tool and a means of shaping more meaningful practice for care experienced young people (and other marginalised youth).
