In 2020

Youth Focus North East became the region’s lead for the National Youth Agency Bursary scheme, where we began delivering Youth Work qualifications, starting with the Level 2 Award in Youth Work Principles.

In 2022

We became a training centre with Skills and Education Group, and developed the training and consultancy centre called Engage.


We offer a range of qualifications and accredited programmes for those aged 16 aged years and above.

Coming soon

We will be launching more qualifications and CPD opportunities, including Level 1 Certificate in Youth Work in Exploring Youth Work and an accredited course in Participation in the Capacity Building Training in Youth Work and Working with Visually Impaired Young People.

This work is important in helping rebuild youth services in our region, enabling youth workers to gain a professional qualification to support their ongoing work with young people to gain professional qualifications.
