Level 2 Award in Youth Work Principles (RQF 603/5507/4)

This training provides participants with an understanding of the skills, knowledge and qualities required to practice as a youth support worker. It leads to a nationally recognised award in youth work and can be used toward completion of the Level 3 Certificate / Diploma in Youth Work Practice.

Course Requirements                

Ideally learners will have accessed prior learning opportunities such as 'Introduction to Working with Young People' and/or have some previous experience of working with young people. Participants must be aged 16 + and have the opportunity to undertake regular ‘face to face’ delivery with young people—this can be voluntary or paid, in person or via technology. The course will be delivered one evening per week via online group sessions and include one extended in-person session mid-way through the course on a Saturday.

Participants will be required to

  • Attend all sessions (we expect a minimum of 90% attendance).
  • Complete a portfolio of evidence and other assessment activities
  • Commit to undertaking 2-3 hours per week of directed and self-directed learning

Your Youth Work setting will be required to

  • Confirm that you have a valid Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check
  • Sign an undertaking that they will support you as a learner and provide opportunities for you to develop and practise your skills
  • Agree to fund the course (if you are not self-funded)
  • Enable you to attend all sessions
