Combining theory and workplace practice
The delivery approach is to embed learning in workplace practice. We offer tailored partnerships for youth work organisations to develop staff, so they feel confident and equipped for the situations they will face.
Personalised coaching for success
Your staff will have their own personal mentor and coach throughout the course that meets with them every six weeks for a one-on-one meeting to discuss their goals and monitor their progress through the programme.
Earn while you learn
Your staff are employed but also developing their own skills at the same time, in an industry that is vital to the youth of this country.
