The National Youth Agency (NYA) is committed to building back the youth work sector after more than a decade of austerity cuts. This means promoting the value of youth work to policy makers, commissioners and funders, as well as supporting the recruitment of new people into the sector and building the skills of those already working or volunteering in youth work.
Help us understand the current level of skills in the youth work workforce by completing the Workforce Survey. The survey will take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.
By completing the Workforce Survey you can help the NYA build an accurate picture of the type of roles people do in the youth work sector, the qualifications that people have, and the kind of youth work that is taking place to meet particular needs of young people. This will help us get a clearer picture of the extent and breadth of the youth work workforce and enable us to campaign on your behalf.
The information we collect from this survey will build on the data gathered in the National Youth Sector Census which it is vital all organisations working with young people complete, as this is the key research evidence commissioned by the Department of Culture Media and Sport. We encourage all organisations to complete their Census survey by March 2024 when we will be taking the next cut of data for our annual report.
