|Online conference, 2nd-5th November 2020 from 1pm-3pm each day
Youth work in all its forms can have a transformational impact on young people’s lives. After a decade of policy neglect and underfunding, the beginning of the 2020s was set to see a strong focus on youth work policy, skills and qualifications not seen for many years.
The pandemic has further highlighted the importance of youth work provision in supporting the needs of young people as we emerge from the crisis.
A government review of statutory guidance this year is due to clarify what services local authorities must provide, while a review of youth work qualifications will set out new routes to the profession and skills for youth workers in the future.
Moreover, the government is pledging significant investment in support and facilities for young people over the course of the next parliament through various funding streams.
Taking place over four consecutive days, you are invited to join a series of two-hour, live sessions between 1pm and 3pm, Monday 2nd to Thursday 5th November.
Youth Work in the 2020s will provide essential learning and insight for everyone who has an interest in the immediate and long-term future of youth work. The online conference - organised by Children & Young People Now, alongside our event partner National Youth Agency - will feature a series of CPD-certified keynote talks and practice seminars to support you in providing high quality, effective services and support to all young people.
We have also included a time slot each day for you to engage with (and learn from) a range of exhibitors who would like to talk about how their products or services can improve your practice.
