Why we're effective Teens and Toddlers works because we provide a positive experience, where teenagers are given responsibility and are encouraged to show the attributes that make them a positive role model. This creates an environment where teenagers can explore the issues that affect them and learn that they have choices.We can be sure that we're effective because Teens and Toddlers has been guided by an evidence-based approach since its inception in 2001, which has allowed us to refine our programmes so that they consistently deliver excellent results. Our headline results can be found here, whilst comprehensive reports into all of our results can be found here. We have won a number of accolades for our evidence-based approach: We won the Best Completed Evaluation and Best Submitted Evaluation Plan at the 2014 Project Oracle Awards. Project Oracle has also assessed our research as being at 'standard 3' - an accolade only held by three other charities. Project Oracle is London’s first children and youth evidence hub, funded by the Greater London Authority (GLA), the Mayor’s Office for Police and Crime (MOPAC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). We recieved the highest score for 'impact' and 'quality of evidence' from Centre for Analysis of Youth Transitions (CAYT). The DfE recommended that we submit our impact report to be assessed by CAYT for impact. CAYT is a DfE sponsored research centre that brings together leading educationalists and social scientists from the Institute for Fiscal Studies, the Institute of Education, and the National Centre for Social Research.
