Caerphilly Youth Service has achieved the Silver Quality Mark for Youth Work in Wales

Caerphilly’s Youth Service has achieved a Silver Quality Mark for Youth Work in Wales on behalf of the Welsh Government and Education Workforce Council.

The achievement recognises that the work of the service is underpinned by a sound range of policies and enables young people to learn and develop personal and social skills.

Caerphilly’s Youth Service had already obtained the Bronze Quality Mark but has now officially been awarded the Silver Quality Mark that demonstrates the continued commitment of the service to continue to improve the standards of the service.

The Education Workforce Council paid tribute to the dedication of the Council’ youth workers, encouraging the service to gain the Gold level of the award before the end of the year. It has also been requested that the service’s curriculum planning arrangements be shared across Wales as good practice.

Cllr Carol Andrews, Cabinet Member for Education and Communities, and Richard (Ed) Edmunds, Corporate Director for Education and Corporate Services, attended the event where the award was presented.

They commented “Thank you to the Caerphilly Youth Service for all that you do with our young people, we know you will continue to do so as you aim for the Gold Quality Award.”
