Other courses of interest to youth work
The National Training Information Service (NTIS) was developed by federal and state governments to provide access to current and emerging training market information and products in vocational education and training. It is useful for finding details of non-tertiary youth work courses, certificates and diplomas, inormation about youth worker qualifications and a list of providers of the Diploma of Community Services (Youth Work). See the NTIS web site.
Many other courses, such as social work, will lead to qualifications which can be used in the youth work field. Please check with individual institutions for details.
Short courses are offered from time to time in various States by institutions working in conjunction with a university. See our list of short courses.
