Over the past year we have been holding discussions with members of TAG – the Training Agencies Group, which is made up of people teaching on Youth and Community Work courses who have an interest in the community work side. We were exploring how community development could be better covered in their courses. Following discussions within the ETS committee we met with Maralyn from NYA to consider how ESB and NYA could work more closely together, and one of our first actions is to map our different requirements for endorsement so we can decide how we could undertake some joint endorsements of youth and community courses or community development modules within such courses.
