"It is a challenging and thorough course - really designed to develop skills, not just give theory. I worked with children and young people in the UK and Australia in a variety of settings and some of the practical skills outlined here would have benefited me and my colleagues ... if we'd only known! You get more out of this course than you could ever get from reading a book, plus you get the Certificate at the end to formalise what you have learned! Although we have operated this course for many years, and many graduates have successfully found work in this industry, now that we have revised it and added some more content, it can only be more valuable to those who study! I highly recommend this course". J.Pollock, Former Youth Worker (UK and Australia).
