The work-plan of the Workforce Development Strategic Participation Group includes a programme for training strong, effective well-skilled leaders and managers. The programme is currently being redeveloped with the support of the National Academy of Educational Leadership. It is aimed at existing leaders and managers, and at people aspiring to acquire the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to manage their organisations and lead Youth Work across Wales into the future.
A working group of representatives from both voluntary and statutory youth sectors, HEIs, and Education and Training Standards have worked alongside FPM to create a training programme aimed at leaders and aspiring leaders in the field of Youth Work in Wales. The programme focuses on the practice of leadership and management in services and organisations, providing a framework to explore both themes so that managers are better able to lead, sustain and develop services that enhance the lives of young people.
The programme will involve six days of in-depth training and group discussion. If you want to be part of it you’ll need to be in a leadership and/or management role so you can test the theories and learning from the programme in your own practice.
