DIPLOMA IN YOUTH MINISTRY

Gaining a youth ministry qualification is often an important indicator of your passion, commitment, experience and professionalism. We therefore offer the Diploma in Youth Ministry for those currently working with, or planning to work with young people especially within the church setting; or for youth workers who want to work with young people from a Christian value base.

The course is designed for you, if you are undertaking youth work voluntarily, in your spare time, part-time, or full-time.

It helps you to develop the skills needed for working with young people both inside and outside the church, and enables you to develop a Christian perspective and rationale to underpin the work you do with young people.

You will gain a deeper understanding of your practice/ministry within the guidelines of the National Occupational Standards for Youth Work.
