Understanding Behaviour: Supporting young people to achieve

Undertaking practical workshops and activities requires a broad understanding of youth culture and the issues surrounding young people’s lives.

You will also look at ways of promoting a style of engagement with young people that supports their wellbeing and individual needs, and helps them to succeed and achieve.
