FREE training for youth workers across Northern Ireland.

PlayBoard’s Youth@Play team will deliver the OCN NI endorsed Playwork in a Youth Work Setting to youth workers across the youth sector this autumn, at Level 2 for part-time staff and volunteers, and at Level 3 for full-time staff. The training is available across all council areas in Northern Ireland with a September/October start date.

The training will give youth workers the capacity to better meet the play needs of members – particularly the younger ones.

The Youth@Play project is built on recognition that play is the most effective mechanism for engaging with children and young people aged up to 13 years within youth settings, and is supported by the Education Authority.
