Momentum is keen to support the next generation of youth workers. As part of our Youth Worker development programme, we have a progression of courses which will help you to gain the skills and knowledge that you need when working with young people. The first stage of this programme is attendance at our short courses 'Introduction to Working with Young People' and 'Introduction to Youth Participation' and the final step is the Level 3 Certificate in Youth Work Practice. Our NOCN courses are subsidised in order to make them affordable for you.
