YCHIOW believes that young people deserve to be able to access high quality youth work services that will make a positive contribution to their lives both now and in the future. We have designed our training programme to enable participants to build a solid understanding of youth work; its values and principles. Our programme provides opportunities to share and develop ideas, to explore good practice and to move forward with work already being done.
If you are interested in any of our courses either as an individual learner or as an employer please contact us by email or by telephone on 01962 852307 to discuss you needs.
Our fun, relaxed sessions offer workers a chance to explore the key concepts and ideas of youth work, develop further skills, knowledge and experience to help develop their work with young people and build relationships with other organisations doing similar work. Sessions take place in Winchester unless otherwise stated.
