Online Youth Work Webinars

As well as our Digital Youth Work training sessions we are putting on a series of webinars with youth work practitioners sharing their use of different platforms and/or addressing some relevant issues.

Each webinar is 30-45 minutes long and includes a presentation and group discussions. Presentations will be recorded and subsequently published on our YouTube playlist - see below for the latest recordings.

You need to register on Zoom for each webinar you want to attend, on registration you will be sent the link. Places are limited to 99 per webinar (we need a place for our guest expert too).
