Abstract

A report from a study which aimed to identify sources of evidence about existing initiatives which aim to promote physical and emotional health and well-being of young people (aged 14-19) within further education settings in England (or comparable college settings in other countries). Specifically, the study addressed the following questions, 1. What is known about the health-related needs, interests and concerns of young people attending colleges of further education in England? 2. What is known about current ‘healthy college’ provision to promote the health and well-being of students attending colleges of further education? 3. What are seen to be successful and promising approaches to health promotion among younger students attending colleges of further education (or comparable types of educational settings in other countries – such as community colleges)? What approaches show little or no promise? 4. What is known about whether certain types of approaches are more useful for particular groups of students (such as young men, young women or students with disabilities or learning difficulties), or for particular health issues (such as sexual health, smoking cessation or emotional well-being)? 5. Given what is known, what does this suggest for the development of programmes to promote health and well-being in further education (FE) college settings in England?
