JNC agree changes to the minimum requirements for qualifications at Level 3 for Youth Support Work roles
23 July 2012
The Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) for Youth and Community Work has amended its report to recognise the Level 3 Certificate in Youth Work Practice as the qualification that confers occupational competence for Youth Support Work roles.
The Level 3 Diploma remains available, and provides additional learning and preparation for those seeking progression into Higher Education programmes leading to Professionally Qualified status. Whilst JNC has identified the Level 3 Certificate as the minimum qualification appropriate, employers are strongly encouraged to also offer CPD to employees within this range, specifically utilising the available Level 3 Diploma in Youth Work Practice.
More information about qualifications for Youth Support Work roles can be found on our website on the Getting Qualified page.
