We’re running a number of workshops in the new year to introduce youth workers to the new framework and discuss plans for the development of further resources and support for the sector.
Over a number of years, the youth work sector has worked collaboratively to clearly articulate the contribution of youth work in Scotland. The youth work outcomes and the youth work skills framework have proved to be valuable tools in planning and evaluating the work we do, and most importantly in providing a structure for reflective learning conversations with young people on their youth work journey.
This year, YouthLink Scotland has been consulting with the sector to integrate these established tools into a single framework, aiming to make it more straightforward for youth workers to make clear connections between outcomes and skills – and for young people to identify and review meaningful learning goals. The refreshed framework can now be found here.
