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.
Sanctuary is the UK’s leading provider of care, housing and community services.
The not-for-profit organisation is backing our campaign and working in partnership with Fixers to help support young people across the country address the issues they want to fix.
With over 94,000 units of accommodation across England and Scotland, Sanctuary believe that building strong communities and inspiring people to make a real difference is as important as providing them with a home.
