Training for workers, volunteers and young people

Youth Scotland provides a programme of locally based training for youth workers and young people, delivered with a range of partner agencies, Area Associations and a team of experienced trainers.

Many courses are free or subsidised for member groups. Youth Scotland also runs a variety of national training events. Youth Scotland members can access most of these courses at a discounted rate.

Our core training includes courses like child protection training, team building, training for trainers, right through to accredited courses, like the PDA in Youth Work and ILM Leading in Youth Work.

We also offer training for our youth awards and many groups can also participate in additional training through our various projects, from youth participation to financial education for young people.

In the pages below you will find our current suite of training courses, programmes and events. You can find more information about these and how to get involved or request training for your group.
