Information providers

There is no central source of information and guidance on formal, informal and youth work learning opportunities. Individual course providers and sector organisations provide information on their own courses.

Public libraries, funded by the Department for Communities, and administered by Libraries NI, are common sources of directories of youth work organisations.

To raise awareness of the range of opportunities open to young people in Northern Ireland and to those who work with them, the Erasmus+ UK National Agency organises annual information sessions for prospective new applicants  and networking events for experienced youth beneficiaries, as well as detailed guidance online.
