National Youth Work & Schools Collaborative 

The Youth Work and Schools Collaborative provides opportunities for discussion and response to policy and practice issues relating to youth work’s role in education.

Youth work is part of Scottish education. This includes playing a vital role in the Scottish Attainment Challenge mission to close the poverty-related attainment gap. The Youth Work and Schools Collaborative provides regular online events to share practice, exchange knowledge and disseminate learning around youth work and education.

The network is open to any youth work practitioner and other educators interested in developing collaborative practice with youth work.

Members of the Collaborative also contribute to the development of YouthLink Scotland’s policy responses on education and have co-designed professional learning for the sector.
