FOUNDATIONAL TRAINING FOR VOLUNTEERS AND YOUNG LEADERS: EQUIPPING WHERE IT MATTERS

Engage: Youth ministry provides you with the understanding and skills you need to be a qualified youth support worker, and the opportunity to put this learning into practice by drawing on the volunteering or part-time work you are engaged in. You can also undertake advanced units in Detached work and work with young people not in Education or Training.

Engage: Children’s ministry gives you the chance to transform your understanding of working with children and families, and the opportunity to gain SkillsActive recognition in Playwork. Engage:CM also covers the Core Skills for children’s work set by the Churches Consultative Group on Ministry Among Children.
