Youth Work Skills Framework
How to use the skills framework
The youth work skills framework can be used in three key ways:
- Young people can use the framework to identify and track the skills they are developing through youth work.
- Youth workers can use the framework in their work with individuals and groups of young people to identify skills.
- Those working in the youth work sector can use the framework to work with colleagues and partners in other sectors and explain the skills that young people develop.
