SLIG Writes New Youth Work Module
3rd May 2013
SLIG, in partnership with Belfast Interface Project (BIP), is leading the way in changing the Youth Work curriculum in Northern Ireland. In 2011, the University of Ulster asked us to design and write a module to be delivered as part of their Community Youth Work certificate. Entitled ‘Community Youth Work in an Interface Setting’, this module is the first of its type to be developed in NI and is a huge achievement for SLIG and BIP. SLIG’s Ciaran McLaughlin and BIP’s Chris O’Halloran will be delivering the module in University of Ulster from April 2013, and it’s our hope that we can also then begin to roll it out to other third level institutions and secondary schools across Northern Ireland, the UK and Ireland. This is part of our on-going advocacy programme, raising awareness of the skills needed and issues around working with young people in deprived interface communities.
