Robinson, Mark; Martin, Kerry
National Foundation for Educational Research
The Children's Workforce Development Council (CWDC) commissioned this literature review as the first part of a project exploring issues around and approaches to working with Travellers, Irish Travellers, Gypsies, Roma and Showpeople, and the support, training and other programs available to staff involved. The project is intended to contribute to the CWDC's ability to support and develop the children's workforce. The main aim of the project was to conduct a literature review and supplementary investigation of the range of issues around and approaches to working with Travellers, Irish Travellers, Gypsies, Roma and Showpeople, and the support, training and other programs available to staff involved. The study will reflect the wider range of services working with children and families, including education services. The project sought to learn: (1) the main findings on existing best practice in support, training and provision of information in relation to the groups examined; (2) the gaps in support, training and information exist for those working with children, young people and families; and (3) what needs to be put in place to support those working with these groups through training, information provision and support. The project aimed to produce a review of the most relevant evidence of good practice in provision of services to Travellers, Irish Travellers, Gypsies, Roma and Showpeople, with evidence of what works, particularly in relation to information, training and support requirements and provision. The report is accompanied by an annotated bibliography [see ED501878] which relays a range of issues and approaches to working with Travellers, Irish Travellers, Gypsies, Roma and Showpeople. Appended to this report is a list of the research team, a description of the search strategy, and a summary template for the literature review.
