About the Quick Guide to Youth Work and CLD

The Quick Guide to Youth Work and CLD gives youth workers an introduction to youth work in a community learning and development (CLD) context.

Every day youth workers across Scotland engage and inspire young people in a range of settings. The work we do is varied, challenging and collaborative. It is also very difficult to define. So what connects youth workers across the country? What do we mean by ‘good’ youth work? How does youth work sit within the wider context of Community Learning and Development (CLD)? And what support is out there for youth workers to develop their own skills and careers?

As well as highlighting some of the language and terms you might come across, this quick guide will signpost some of the organisations that could help you on your youth work journey.
