Evaluation and advice for the It Takes a Village: Multicultural Early Learning Program (ITaV)
This project aims to provide research and evaluation advice and services for the It Takes a Village: Multicultural Early Learning Program (ITaV) currently operating under the auspices of Save the Children, in the south-east corridor of the metropolitan area of Perth.
It is anticipated that the formal evaluation will provide solid evidence to:
- assess the role of this project in building social capital of children and families from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) backgrounds in Western Australia; and
- establish whether this model should be more widely incorporated into the suite of settlement services currently available to newly-arrived migrant and humanitarian entrant families in Australia.
The evidence that will emerge from a formal evaluation process has the potential to impact considerably at both the policy and practice level and therefore improve settlement policy and resourcing.
