Youth & Children’s Work Training & Events

If the children and young people in our parishes and communities are “to encounter the love and depth of the Christian faith and the person of Jesus Christ” (Going for Growth 2010) then it is vital that those who work as children’s & youth leaders in our churches, whether voluntarily or as employed workers, are trained and equipped for service.

There are a variety of courses available, from professional qualifications offered by recognised providers to local events designed for local leaders:

Core Skills Workforce Training courses, run by Pro-Action, are designed to enhance the work of volunteers, youth workers and professionals – click here for details of their forthcoming training.

UK Youth run short eLearning programmes – simple, clear and easy ways to improve your work with young people. These programmes provide an introduction to key topics, such as: ‘Action into Learning with Young People’, ‘Cyberbullying’, ‘Engaging the Hard to Engage’, ‘Group Work in a Youth Work setting’, ‘Raising Aspirations’, and ‘Understanding and Working with Difficult Behaviour’.

Onelife Young Leaders – for the specific development of young people we would like to encourage you to take a look at Onelife.
