Youth Work Apprentices
This week we celebrate that 1 year ago Harley, Matty and Sam joined the Youth Work Team to embark on their apprenticeship. Wakefield is the first authority to have employed Youth Work apprentices. They are on a 2 year placement and whilst they are doing this they are completing a NVQ Level 2 and 3 in Youth & Community Work.
Lets hear from them and see what they’ve been doing…
Sam – “I’d like to say – what a year it’s been! I’ve had some amazing experiences which I wouldn’t have had the chance to do if it wasn’t for this apprenticeship. I’ve met some great characters, got a great team around me and definitely found what I want to do in the future. I can’t wait for my second year – it’s going to be even better!”
Matty said “An incredibly amazing journey”.
What Harley said… “My confidence has grown more than I thought it ever could have…I’m working with a fantastic team and they have supported me this year through all the work that I have done…I love working with the Youth Work Team and I can’t wait to see what the future brings”.
