Event description

Description

Learning outcomes; those participating will gain an understanding of the unique value of Detached/Mobile/Outreach youth work approaches, which establish appropriate trusting relationships with young people who choose to spend their free time on the streets and public spaces rather than in organised activity. This approach engages young people in open access social education to enable them to be both safer and happier through an increase in both their resilience and objectivity.

Seminar content will include;

  • The crucial importance of developing trusting relationships with young people and the structured youth work conversations that follow. (References to academic texts and further reading)
  • Clarification of detached work, outreach work and mobile work, and their differing benefits to young people (References to academic texts and further reading)
  • Skills/knowledge (training/induction) required by youth workers to be able to plan and deliver this area of work
  • Skills/knowledge required of line managers to develop, support and resource quality, street based work with young people
  • Political, community and interagency concerns/support for these areas of youth work including its efficient use of resources
  • Consideration of safe working practises, including the obligation to report concerns
  • The seminar will take the form of a brief introduction, covering history and terminology. Followed by an informal structured conversation between the tutor team and those attending, it will be facilitated through a series of pre-planned open questions and challenges.
