Apprenticeships in Wales help to inspire success in the individual and bring huge benefits to the workplace.

Young people grow up in an ever more complex world, facing an often confusing array of choices and issues as they progress towards adulthood. This makes youth work an increasingly sophisticated workplace in which to be involved in the contemporary world. An Apprenticeship in Youth Work is about; helping young people fulfil their potential through personal and social development; And providing young people with challenges and new experiences, whilst allowing them to be creative, active and have fun – all part of an informal and non-formal educational approach that helps young people to develop their own voice and identity.
