Engage: Youth Ministry and Engage: Children’s Ministry are practical distance learning training courses. They are specifically designed for part-time, volunteer and full-time youth leaders and children’s workers. These courses will provide you with the knowledge and skills that you need to be a competent and confident Christian youth worker or children’s worker within your church or organisation.
To complete Engage: Youth Ministry, you will need:

  • A placement where you are able to undertake practical youth or children’s work in a supportive environment. There should be opportunities to run a variety of activities, so that you have plenty of practical experience to write and reflect on in your assignments.
  • Recent CRB
  • A Line Manager who is prepared to support your learning and write a report about your youth work.
  • A Mentor who will support your personal development and meet with you to discuss and challenge your learning.
  • Access to a computer is preferable.
  • To attend the six training days (dates below)
  • Time to complete the face-to-face youth or children’s work (approximately 3-5 hours a week) and time to complete assignments (2-3 hours a week)
