TRAINING

We offer an invaluable range of training courses tailored to meet the needs of an effective youth group.

Training courses accredited by Action4Youth

At Action4Youth our aim is to provide our members with access to quality, subsidised training ensuring that cost is not a barrier to up-skilling staff and volunteers.

The sessions are designed to focus on the needs of your organisation to best support you in your youth setting.

We have undertaken a review of our workshops and are gradually adding to the suite of opportunities.

Covid-19 update

We hope you are staying well. As of 01/07/2020 the voluntary sector and youth organisations remain physically closed. We know this is a difficult time, Action4Youth have strongly felt the impact of Covid-19. We are starting slowly to get staff back in the office from furlough.

Online training

Face to face training opportunities have been postponed. These will be resumed in line with guidance. In the meantime we are pleased to announce our new online training. Bookings and payment will need to be made online. For more information see below

To support you Action4Youth have a series of online training opportunities available. These remain subsidised for our valued members, in addition we are able to open these up to partners in the youth sector. Take a look on our training page and book your place today.

Coffee and chat

These informal virtual sessions will be held fortnightly. Take the opportunity to speak to others to find out what steps organisations are taking to support young people.
