Youth Service Training & Recruitment
We currently have a cohort in training. Contact us for information on the next training recruitment.
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 20078578 during office hours.
