Youth Worker Training Scheme


Department of Internal Affairs


The Youth Worker Training Scheme (YWTS or the Scheme) encourages the development of training opportunities for youth workers to increase the quality of youth work practices in New Zealand. The Scheme provides small grants to meet informal training needs of youth workers and their employing agencies.




Organisations with legal status (or those that come under the umbrella of a group that has its own legal status) can apply for funding. Training can be short term (one day - three months) courses, conferences, and training events that improve youth workers' knowledge and skills, short term (one day - three months) courses which may be a component of a long-term training course, such as a university paper, or polytechnic course module


This year $181,000 will be distributed among five regions (Northern, Central, Lower North Island, Southern and Dunedin). Regions may distribute their entire funding in a single round, or hold funding to be distributed as training events become available throughout the year. Costs associated with running a training course are considered on a case-by-case basis.
