Training Opportunities

27 October 2022

Over the coming months, we will be increasing our training offer to include a variety of youth work qualifications. These will include a level 1 aimed at young leaders and volunteers, a level 2 aimed at staff and volunteers who work a few evenings or sessions a week, and a level 3 aimed at those who support other part time youth workers and who have a substantial post.

We can already offer a variety of first aid courses for staff, including the one-day emergency first aid at work course and one and two day mental health first aid (MHFA) courses. There is also a one-day MHFA course aimed at those working with young people.

Alongside the above qualifications, we are also offering various short courses including, but not limited to, universal safeguarding and equality and diversity.

Our offer for young people includes a one- or three-hour first aid or mental health first aid course.

We will be developing additional opportunities for staff and young people in the coming months.
