The Youth Worker Training Scheme may fund:
- short-term (one day to three months) courses, conferences, and/or training events that improve youth workers' knowledge and skills
- short-term (one day to three months) courses which may be a component of a long-term training course, such as a university paper, or polytechnic course module
- the national youth work qualifications (workplace assessment)
- training for youth workers to gain national standards for youth work called 'Tohu'. 'Tohu' is facilitated by the Youth Workers' Network and is in addition to the workplace assessment arrangements.
