Trainees have the choice of two routes: assessed and non-assessed courses.


The non-assessed course is geared towards those wishing to volunteer, whereas the assessed course may be followed by those wishing to be considered for future, potential part-time employment within the Youth Service.

Following a selection process (involving an interview) for both routes, selected trainees are involved in an initial ‘Introduction to Youth Work - Aims, Objectives and Delivery’ session, and thereafter will participate in face-to-face youth work during evenings and weekends.

The assessed route will require trainees to evidence a set of core youth work skills and develop a relevant social educational project. Successful completion of the assessed route will result in the award of a local certificate in ‘An Introduction to Understanding Youth Work’ and eligibility to apply for future Part-Time Youth Support Worker vacancies.

The training period will run for about 6 months, during which time trainees have the opportunity to work alongside Youth Workers and Support Staff in a variety of youth work scenarios.

This training offers an ideal opportunity for those wishing to work with young people and with a commitment to their education and welfare.

Further information about the courses and application procedure can be obtained from the Gibraltar Youth Office on (+350) 200 78578 during office hours. 

Our next training recruitment will be in 2024.
