Please find below a list of our upcoming digital events NYA are running. Please click the sign up here link to find out more about each session and submit your details to receive a joining link.

Part of these events are monthly Youth Work Tea Breaks, a collaboration with Debbie Terras from NYA, Vanessa Rogers and Charlotte Gordon from Kip Education CIC. The idea of the tea breaks was the development of a reflective platform to enable practitioners to come together and explore common themes which impact our practice on a daily basis. It is very much an informal learning set, bringing together youth work practitioners to engage in critical thinking and dialogue. Each session has a specific theme and the discussions are very much led by the participants.
