Gain the skills you need to work in this challenging but rewarding field

People who pursue a career in the community services sector (Youth Work) have a passion in empowering and supporting young people and their families.

Youth work is a practice that places young people and their interests first and is a relational practice, where the youth worker operates alongside the young person in their context. It is an empowering practice that advocates for and facilitates a young person's independence, participation in society, connectedness and realisation of their rights. (Australian Youth Affairs Coalition, 2013)

This course will enable you to engage effectively with young people and work alongside them to meet their needs and goals. Take the opportunity to gain the skills you need to work in this challenging but rewarding sector.

Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, to continue your learning journey, this program will be delivered remotely where possible.

Participants will be required to engage with theoretical components of the course online and via video conferencing software rather than attend classes. Refer to our COVID-19 Online Service Standards for details of minimum technical requirements and support available.

Practical skills training and assessment will be carried out in scheduled small classes to meet social distancing requirements. Practical Placement is a required component of this course and will be scheduled as soon as possible with an appropriate placement host. Given the current environment, however, this may take longer than normal and therefore, expected completion dates for the course may need to be extended to take account of deferred placement.

If you have any queries on the practical placement of a course, please contact our student information centre on 1300 244 746 or enquiries@chisholm.edu.au.
