Consultation on proposals for a Youth Justice National Qualification Framework & Apprenticeship scheme
The YJB are committed to supporting the development of a professionally qualified youth justice workforce who are skilled and motivated to work with and care for children and young people in the youth justice system, in both community and secure settings. It is particularly critical at this time of reform that the Youth Justice System has the capable workforce that it needs.
We are therefore pleased to send you details of our proposed Youth Justice National Qualification Framework and are keen to hear your views about the implications of this Qualification, how it would fit with existing structures and what impact this could have. It is anticipated that the Youth Justice National Qualification Framework would be available for the whole of the Youth Justice workforce and allow professionals to work across both secure and community settings.
There is also the opportunity to comment upon the possible development of a Youth Justice Apprenticeship as a trailblazer which could attract funding from central government.
I am grateful for your support in this consultation and look forward to receiving your comments and responses.
The deadline for responses is 11 March 2016.
