Are you looking to progress and qualify as a JNC Youth Support Worker?
Are you already registered with the Education Workforce Council but with a Level 2 qualification?
Do you want to be able to register with the Education Workforce Council in future?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, register your interest to take part in a funded Level 3 Certificate in Youth Work Practice, delivered via experienced centres registered with Agored Cymru, by completing this form:
Welsh Government consultation in 2022 outlined these proposals for Youth Work: (see paragraphs 37-40)
To strengthen the professionalisation of the youth work workforce we have decided to remove the Level 2 qualifications from the 2016 Order.
However, those already registered with a Level 2 qualification will continue to register in the category of Youth Support Worker for two years from the commencement of the order.
This allows time for any individuals not currently working towards a higher-level qualification to consider their options and enrol on a course that provides eligibility for provisional registration (if they wished to do so). This 2-year window also provides an opportunity for individuals to avoid a gap in registration.
[The Registration Rules 2023 came into force on 1 June 2023.]
