About this Unit
In this unit students are further familiarised with contemporary debates about how to best meet the needs of young people, including those with special needs. Students develop a critical awareness of the approaches used by government and community-based organisations to meet such needs. This unit also examines in detail the range of occupational contexts and opportunities available in youth work and the skills required. An understanding of youth work contexts includes the social, financial and ethical environments in which organisations function.
