Review of the Level 2/ 3 Youth Work in Practice qualifications for Youth Support Workers - Questionaire
The National Youth Agency Workforce team is currently working with Awarding Organisations in England and Wales to undertake a review of the Level 2/ 3 Youth Work in Practice qualifications for Youth Support Workers as they are due to expire in November 2014.
As part of this work NYA and Welsh ETS have agreed to collate feedback for Youth Work employers using Level 2/3 qualifications in Youth Work Practice to contribute to the review process. The time scale is incredibly short as the qualification review has to be completed by July in order to implement any changes requested for the qualifications by November 2014. Feedback needs to be returned to NYA no later than 21st February 2014 in order to contribute to the discussions with Awarding Organisations about the qualifications, their relevance to the workforce and any changes that would be requested from employers to ensure their workforce are trained appropriate to the needs of their job roles now and in the future.
The questionnaire provides an opportunity for you and your colleagues to share your experience of delivering the qualifications and the experiences of learners undertaking the programmes too. The questionnaire is also available through the NYA website at www.nya.org.uk .
The questionnaire can be found in the members’ area of the CHYPS website:
