1 - Assessment tool and checklist

An assessment tool and a checklist were developed.

  • The assessment tool is a self-assessment tool that aims to provide teachers and school staff with a set of exploratory questions to identify young carers and to assess the impacts, (positive and/or negative), of caring activities on school attainment, attendance, interaction with peers etc. Issues raised by the questionnaire can subsequently be further discussed in individual conversations and can be the starting point for implementing. The assessment tool is available in English, Italian, Portuguese Slovenian and Swedish. The report for this output describes the development and testing of the assessment tool.
  • The checklist is for teachers and school staff to help them to identify possible young carers. The checklist is available in English, Italian, Portuguese Slovenian and Swedish.
