Level Two and Three Youth Work Diploma

We have developed a Level 2 & 3 Youth Work Diploma which is JNC recognised for Youth Support Workers across the spectrum of settings.


We are delighted to announce that this course will continue, and is the only course of its kind in the county..

We have created it for paid and voluntary youth workers who wish to develop their youth work skills, understanding and practice.

The course is supported by the University of Gloucestershire as a gateway qualification to their range of undergraduate Youth Work courses.

We will be running a variety of Level 2 Awards throughout the year, and these will feed into two Level 3 Diplomas.


 Participants will be expected to undertake paid or voluntary work in a youth work setting, and we include observations of your youth work practice.


A completed portfolio of youth work evidence will need to be submitted for assessment. Internal and External verification is built into the strucutre of the courses.


The course will be fun and informative and you will enjoy the hard work. Come along and develop your practice.


The Level 2 and 3 courses combined cost £750 per person and includes a training residential. We are working with various organisations and funders to bring this cost down so please contact us about help.

Safeguarding Training

We all know how important it is to ensure young people are protected, and safeguarding is a vital element of our work. We, therefore, offer training in this vital area.

Building upon over 25 years of experience in child protection training within the voluntary youth sector and training many of the youth work staff in and around the county, our training is well respected.

Utilised by the Safeguarding Board, delivering schools-based training and Safer Recruitment, our training is also used by organisations, district and borough councils and voluntary youth clubs.

We can develop bespoke training for your organisation and have worked with a range of organisations already, from local authorities, churches, youth organisations and social housing providers. Contact us to see how we can help.

Health and Safety and Risk Assessments

It is always important to take every opportunity to ensure our activities are safe. Therefore, we offer training that will help you develop your understanding of risk assessments and improve your practice in this area. Contact us to find out more.
