Campaign: To show the benefits of youth work

My team and I would like more schools to offer pupils the chance to study youth work as we feel its benefits as a potential A Level subject aren’t recognised.

 

If it were to be included in the curriculum, young people in schools and academies could then decide whether or not they want to take on the subject.

 

As it stands, North Oxfordshire Academy, where we attend as students, is one of only a small number of sixth forms to have a youth work course as an option.

 

With the help of Fixers, we’re creating a documentary-style film to show others the benefits of youth work, and we hope that by spreading the word, more places of learning will be encouraged to add the course as an option for young people.
