The Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) for Youth and Community Workers endorses a range of professional qualifications in youth and community work. While grading and pay reflect an employee’s duties and responsibilities, qualifications still form an important part in establishing competence. Guidance is provided in the JNC Agreement ‘Pink Book’ to support local discussions on criteria for allocating employees to a particular salary range with reference to qualifications within the JNC Framework (attached).
The Employers’ Side of the JNC recognises the value and importance of the qualifications framework and has confirmed its support for it. They are interested to explore its operation in both the statutory and voluntary sectors as part of their review of the JNC. They would therefore be grateful if you could give consideration to the attached questions or refer this form to the appropriate contact in your organisation.
