Step-Into-Youth Work is an 18 week course designed to introduce young people to the various aspects of Youth Work and what is required to make the first steps into a career in this field.
We look at the historical aspects of Youth work and where we are today. We explore the current issues facing young people today including the various legislation and the different approaches needed, such as engagement, confidence building and teamwork.
The course is 3 days a week with the student expected to find a voluntary position out of college time. After the 18 weeks our students will be ready for the next step, in their journey to become the Youth Workers of tomorrow, be it further education or a position with a youth organisation.
