An Introduction to Management in Youth Work
November 30 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Managing youth services is no mean feat. In recent times, it has become even more challenging with less funding and resources available to secure the work.
Aimed at new or prospective managers, this session offers an opportunity to develop management skills and explore basic management theories.
This includes anyone currently managing volunteers or part-time staff and looking to move into a management role within the statutory or voluntary youth and community sector.
- Explore the ethics of managing people and identify what makes someone a ‘good manager’
- Learn about effective communication and the importance of working together
- Consider time management and ways to delegate and prioritise work
- Identify personal management styles and develop a leadership action plan.
Vanessa Rogers is a nationally acclaimed youth work trainer and author with experience of managing a wide range of services for young people (11-25), including early intervention, youth offending and targeted services. She is best known for creating practice-based educational resources for youth workers and teachers, published worldwide by Jessica Kingsley Publishers. These provide creative ways to engage young people in learning about traditionally emotive topics including relationships and sex (RSE), pornography and peer domestic abuse to develop the life skills to make healthy, positive choices.
She continues to work with young people across the UK on a commissioned basis, is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) and sits on the council for the Institute for Youth Work (IYW).
