Participation, so what?

April 9, 2019

What does young people’s participation really mean? When we have heard the voice of the child, “So what?”

What happens next is crucial. Natalie Trentham, former OFSTED inspector*, explores these themes and gives us her view of why Mind Of My Own is the ideal tool to enable young people’s meaningful participation, in this 12 minute video.

So why not make yourself a drink and use your break to hear Natalie using her wealth of experience and knowledge, specifically as an inspector, to explore the benefits of digital participation.

This is our first venture into vlogging. Please tell us what you think!
