When interviewing children and young people individually, we ask them what is happening for them in relation to each of the desired experiences. We use a similar process in our interviews with families, whānau and others who provide care, support or services to children and young people. We ask them to tell us what they see happening in relation to each of the desired experiences.
The next step is to explore the practices, policies and organisational context that enable or present a barrier to children and young people experiencing high quality services. Our ratings and recommendations are based on this analysis.
Table 2 describes the desired experiences for all children and young people and the questions we ask in relation to each principle.
