Introduction to Professional Youth Work Practice
YACVic, in partnership with Victoria University School of Health and Community Services Youth Work are conducting a series of professional development workshops for workers within the youth sector. The primary focus of the workshops will be on the promotion and understanding of YACVic’s ‘Code of Ethical Practice’.
Two ways to take part:
1. Complete the series and an assessment component to receive a Certificate of National Recognition for two core units that sit within the Certificate IV and Diploma of Youth Work.
