Existing arrangements

 

Young people can participate in a youth work programme managed and coordinated by Agenzija Zghazagh made up of 3 levels. The first level is called “Access Skills for Independent Living and Working Life”. This course is between 35-40 weeks long and starts every September. On completion of the first level young people can continue with the second level called “Skills for Independent Living and Working Life”. This course is between 35-40 weeks long and starts every September. The third course is called “Connect Skills and Competences for the Work Place”. This course is between 35-40 weeks long and starts every September”. All three courses are delivered by professional youth workers employed by Aġenzija Żgħażagħ and lead towards formal accreditation at MQF Level 1, 2 and 3 respectively.

 

Skills

 

Currently there are no top-level national policies and/or recognition mechanisms identify specific skills and competences that can be acquired through youth work.
