The Level 3 Certificate is recognised as conveying the Youth Support Worker Level 3 recognition.
The course involves 6/7 day conferences, distance learning, reflective supervision and learning by doing!
One student says “I enjoyed gaining a better insight into youth work. I loved the fact that the course gave a chance to apply our learning and learn things outside of the classroom. My knowledge has increased and my love for youth work has also increased.”
