Youth work apprenticeship

Youth work is about providing young people with challenges and new experiences by allowing them to be creative, active and have fun – all part of an informal education that helps young people to develop their own voice and identity.

There’s an administrative side to youth work as well. You might help manage volunteers or part-time staff, help apply for grants, keep records of your work, and network with other professionals including social workers, teachers and probation officers.

At the end of your apprenticeship, you’ll be a youth support worker and in a good position to take the next step in your career as a youth worker, with qualifications that most employers will support you in doing on a part-time basis.
