Our work Training We love to empower and train passionate people to provide good quality youth work. In 2019, we launched our Level 2 Award training in Youth Work Practice, in response to requests from some of Romsey Mill's young leaders. In our first year, we successfully trained 40 students, and have since run several Level 2 and Level 3 courses. We currently offer training for Level 2 Awards and Level 3 Certificates in Youth Work Practice (dates for next courses to be confirmed): Level 2 Award in Youth Work Practice This accredited course (NOCN, 11 credits) is suitable for those who are currently involved in a voluntary or professional youth work setting and want to develop their youth work practice.
