The Training of Part-time Youth Leaders and Assistants (the Bessey Report)

Author: HMSO 1962

In July 1961, the Minister set up a working party under the chairmanship of Mr. G. S. Bessey to consider the nature of the training which should be available to part-time youth leaders and assistants, both paid and voluntary, and to advise on the best ways of arranging such training. Their report, published in July 1962, took one stage further the study of the youth leader's job, and suggested a minimum professional skill needed, whether the leader worked full-time or part-time. The report identified a common element in the training required by part-time leaders of youth groups of all kinds, and recommended that local education authorities and local voluntary bodies should jointly organise basic courses incorporating this common element of training.

Training Review 2005

Author: Chris Gregory, Wales Youth Agency 2005

Report of research undertaken by the Wales Youth Agency incorporating an audit of youth sector training across the 22 local authorities in Wales.

The research consultancy operated from 2nd March 2005 to 24th March 2005, 8 days total consultancy time.

The purpose of this audit was to gather information on youth-work training taking place across Wales and, where possible, identify venue and course details.  Data collected was to be used to assist in resource and information sharing, offering enhancement of existing partnerships and opportunities to develop economies-of-scale and best practice.  Additionally the process offered an overall “snapshot” of current youth sector training activity, and allowed respondents to provide any other information relevant to the review.
