Youth Service Training & Recruitment
The Gibraltar Youth Service is in the final stages of completing the ‘Introduction to Youth Work’ training course for the new volunteers who started early 2020.
NEXT INTAKE WILL BE 2021 (date tbc)
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 until the end of September 2020, 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 future courses and application procedure can be obtained from the Gibraltar Youth Office on 20078578 during office hours.
