Resource is our one year training programme for older young people and young adults who want to become youth workers!
As many of you will know Forge really values developing leaders and we have being doing so for many years with volunteers, internships and students. Resource is the next step in continuing to do this, we hope that by formalising some of our training and making it free Resource will be able to open the doors to many more individuals to train as youth workers and pursue their callings.
The year will consist of supported study to gain an accredited youth work qualification at level 2 or 3, face to face youth work experience and being part of the Form discipleship year! We of course hope to take some of the people who complete Resource through to further study as part of our degree programmes but we believe the mix of qualifications and experience given as part of Resource will equip individuals to step into a wider variety of opportunities that perhaps before would not have been available to them!
Last year we had 3 people on the course and this year 1 is doing their full degree placement with us.
If you or someone you know would be interested in being part of Resource 18/19 please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0114 2419560 and we will send an application pack straight out to you.
