Community work consultation

Posted on Wednesday, October 31, 2001

Extensive consultation is taking place shortly on the revised community work occupation standards. Members are encouraged to respond to this and ensure that the standards which began life years as proto NVQs minus any reference to social justice, truly reflect the co operative and collective values underpinning community work. The Federation of Community Workers has attracted Active Community Unit funding to appoint two new training development officers to move training in the sector along. Meanwhile the Community Work Standards Board now needs to complete its process of professionalisation by making a clear link with the JNC. The NYA has suggested that this approach be made also.
