TYLAP - more than just youth work

TYLAP (Training Young Leader Apprenticeship Programme) carried out a review in Februay and March 2016. This review and subsequent recommendations will enable KYC to ensure that TYLAP is accessible, and attractive.

These were the agreed recommendations from that review:

  1. Change the age range of young adults accessing TYLAP to 18 - 30.
  2. Have two structured intakes of young adults participating on the Certificate in Youth Work (Level 2) course each year (September and April).
  3. Recruit Apprentice Youth Workers twice a  year (September and April).
  4. Recruit a Student Youth Worker twice a year (from Septemeber 2017).
  5. Deliver the Certificate in Youth Work (Level 2) course from alternativ and more accessible venues.
  6. Provide access (on site and elsewhere) to a wider range of professional courses and opportunities.
  7. Implement a more robust and effective 'moving on from TYLAP' system of support.
  8. Develop and implement a theory of change for TYLAP
  9. Improve the branding and profile of TYLAP.

More detail on these changes can be found on the TYLAP tab.
