The Youth Work in the 2020s conference, in partnership with National Youth Agency, was originally planned as a physical event. It is now taking place during Youth Work Week and is moving online to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all participants and speakers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sessions will take place between 1pm and 3pm each day. Moreover, delegates will benefit from on-demand access to all of the sessions for three months after the event. The conference is CPD-certified, meaning all delegates will receive a certificate recording their attendance.

The programme features practical insight on a range of topical sessions including:

  • A 10-year vision for youth work and services for young people, set out by NYA
  • The ongoing review of youth work curriculum and qualifications, and what it means for the youth sector workforce
  • The role of youth work and evaluating practice during the pandemic
  • Tookits and top tips on youth participation
  • How open access provision has been affected by the pandemic
  • Practice tips on empowering girls and young women
  • The role of youth work and youth services in schools for vulnerable young people
  • Using contextual safeguarding approaches when creating programmes for young people
  • Trauma-informed youth work in health settings
  • Panel discussions on employment and funding; and investing in the local youth offer
