The Level Three Certificate in Youth Work has been designed to ensure that all youth workers have access to the necessary training and qualifications, that unqualified workers are supported and encouraged to progress, and that the qualification is mapped to the National Occupational Standards. On completion of the full certificate the worker will gain recognition as a Youth Support Worker within Wales.
The Certificate in Youth Work is a new addition to the YMCA Wales Community College programme and is being run across Wales by a number of tutors.
To allow students to access Handouts and Activity sheets via the internet and to reduce excess copying by the College this page will house all these documents electronically, in both English and Cymraeg, for students and tutors to access.
Tutor Resources can be found in the ’Tutor Pack’ to the right of this screen, which includes the lesson plans as well as the relevant resources.
These documents have been password protected so if you are interested in downloading a copy of any of our documents please contact Becky Watson Stubbs with your name and the course you are currently enrolled on. A password will then be given to you to allow access to the files for this academic year. The tutor/supervisor documents have a different password so to access both you will need to contact Becky again.
Please be aware that the passwords will be changed at the end of every academic year, and your name and course details may be held on record.
