Please find below a list of our upcoming digital events NYA are running. Please click the sign up here link to find out more about each session and submit your details to receive a joining link.

Part of these events are monthly Youth Work Tea Breaks. The idea of the tea breaks was the development of a reflective platform to enable practitioners to come together and explore common themes which impact our practice on a daily basis. It is very much an informal learning set, bringing together youth work practitioners to engage in critical thinking and dialogue. Each session has a specific theme and the discussions are very much led by the participants.

Our Tea Breaks and Supper Clubs are not only spaces for critical reflection, sharing and debate, they can also be counted towards your professional development…take a look at our events and be sure to include them in your CPD plans!
