Event description

Description

This event will be of interest to frontline workers, team leaders and senior managers who are looking to enhance their own practice – or that of their teams.

The YMCA George Williams College delivers programmes and qualifications from entry level certificates and diplomas through to under and post-graduate courses; the college has built its unique reputation by specialising in relational and reflective practice and developing practitioners working with young people, families and communities.

This year is particularly exciting as we are launching new courses in Scotland in February 2018, in partnership with YMCA Scotland. Come along to our free taster event and find out how we are developing learning opportunities in Scotland and also attend a free workshop entitled: Resilient Practitioners led by our leadership specialist, Jeff Salter.

At the session you can hear more about:

The Level 3 Diploma Programme covering topics such as: Youth and Community, Outdoor Learning, Community Sports, working in specialist educational settings and mental health. These are 12 month courses that use flexible blended learning that fits with every day work. This will give you a youth work qualification validated by Community Learning and Development Scotland with an access into higher education.

Also being delivered is our 20 credit Level 7 short course: Strategic Leadership and Development. This is aimed at those who are already qualified practitioners, now in management positions, wanting to develop their skills and confidence. Participants gain insight so they can see how their own preconditioning, perceptions, beliefs and assumptions can get in the way of understanding the people they lead or work with. It promotes personal discovery and new approaches for solving problems.

Jeff Salter’s workshop will be an opportunity to try out some of these ideas and put into practice some research-led approaches to resilience in the workplace.

So – come along and ask all the questions you want. Attendance at the launch event is free, but places are limited - so do book your place to avoid disappointment.
