Students need to undertake at least 14 hours per week during term-time, half of which need to be face-to-face with children, young people or families. Most students continue to work during college vacations and are allocated a certain number of weeks holiday per year by their agency.

If students are intending to pursue JNC accreditation through their studies, at least 80% of the face-to-face hours should be with the 13-19 age range.

For all students the type of work must be where children and young people choose to associate freely, as this is a core value of playwork and youth and community work.

An educational package we offer to schools Weekly classroom sessions give an opportunity to explore the needs of young people, child protection issues, consider core values in working with others, and help the pupils develop communication and planning skills.  The sixth formers then get involved in supporting younger people through mentoring, extra-curricular activities, sports coaching and so on.  The potential impact on the life of the school is enormous, as a group of older pupils become role models to younger pupils.  Their sense of self-worth grows as they realise they have something to offer others.  For most young people this is the first time they have done any voluntary work! eXplore offers an excellent opportunity to work closely with a local school, engaging with the heart of the school’s business, and impacting the lives of many young people who would normally have no contact with the church.

  • NOCN Level 2 Award/Certificate in Youth Work Practice (26 Credits)
  • Assistant Youth Support Worker vocational qualification (National Youth Agency endorsed)
  • Certificated volunteer hours
  • Reference from a mentor
  • Gain new skills, grow in self-confidence, wider life experience, sense of responsibility

Oxford CYM Consultation

The Oxford CYM Core staff team has over 100 years experience in children’s and youth work between them, having worked in a variety of contexts including churches, youth projects and schools. This experience combined with years of study and keeping up to date with the latest theological and theoretical thinking, means that we have a lot to offer you, your church or organisation.

  • Perhaps you are thinking about starting some youth work but don’t know where to start
  • Maybe you are hoping to run a children’s holiday club and need to know what to do to get it off the ground
  • You might need to re-envision and re-inspire the work that is already happening
  • Whatever your need, Oxford CYM can offer fresh insights and practical solutions, and help you to achieve the hopes and dreams you have for the children and young people around you

Our consultancy package includes an initial telephone conversation to help us understand where your need lies, and you to work out who needs to be part of the consultation at your end. A consultation meeting will then be arranged at a cost of £50 plus travel expenses. Should further work need to be carried out, then costs will be agreed on an ongoing basis.

Four businesspeople at boardroom table watching presentationSome churches and organisations find making use of an outside perspective a helpful way to support the development of ministry in their locality.

Oxford CYM has a tutor team who have led, managed and developed youth work, community work and children’s work in a range of contexts, and are able to offer their wisdom and expertise to local churches and charities, for example, you may be discerning the way forward for your work with young people and would like someone to support or facilitate this process. Or you may thinking about employing a part-time, full-time or trainee worker and would like some guidance regarding management and support structures. Consultancy and guidance fees vary depending on you requirements. Members of our team are experienced in presenting the case of youth and children’s work in the public forum and in committee structures; many are also published authors and researchers and often called to speak at conferences. Contact us without obligation to find out what we can offer.

College teacher giving a lectureOur staff at Oxford CYM are experienced expert practitioners as well as educators and facilitators. They are available to deliver presentations and facilitate training on a wide range of issues surrounding working with children and young people. If you want to update, re-inspire and stretch your staff team or equip and encourage your volunteers. If you want to invest in developing your children’s and youth ministry or engage with parents and other family members. We can offer insightful and challenging training on a subject that suits you.

MentoringOxford CYM is passionate about sustainable work and ministry with children and young people. Mentoring is a useful way of helping people to deal with and grow from the everyday challenges of working in the context of church or para-church organisations, and an effective tool for personal development and career progression.

A mentor is a guide who can help the mentee to find the right direction and to develop solutions to issues, based on a confidential relationship of mutual trust and respect, that is outside the reporting hierarchy at work. By gently challenging and encouraging a mentor can boost a mentor’s confidence in their own ability to take responsibility and make wise decisions.The Oxford CYM team is offering mentoring to those that require this kind of professional relationship on a short or long term basis for £25 per hour. Please get in touch if this is something that you would like to benefit from.

Oxford CYM Connections

Our commitment to transforming the churches’ engagement with children and young people is enhanced by working with other organisations that share our passion, and contribute to or benefit from the work that we do . . .

Oxford Youth Works – for 25 years OYW has been a prophetic voice in youth ministry (they were one of the originators of CYM) as well as dedicated to practice. As our partner organisation, we share resources and staff in a synergistic relationship. Oxford Youth Works

We believe in being, as well as teaching, reflective practitioners. Two of our staff work mainly in secondary schools: Fran Walsh has a chaplaincy role at St Gregory the Great’s and Rob Tumilty is the Youth Worker and Mentor at North Oxfordshire Academy. Sam Richards is a leading member of the Maybe Community in Oxford and volunteers for NCT and her local primary school. porting a child with additional needs, and heads up the youth management group at her church.

CMS (Church Mission Society) – We rent fantastic facilities from CMS and are delighted that this gives our students opportunities to meet mission practitioners from around the world. We are also really pleased that CMS staff have now started delivering Mission and Biblical Studies programmes to those on our internship programme. Church Mission Society

Methodist Children and Youth – Although the Methodist Church run their own training programmes for those working with children and young people  we continue to maintain a warm relationship as we seek to serve those who volunteer within the Methodist Church. Meg Prowting, the National Children and Youth Development Officer spoke about their new vocational training for young people at our conference. Methodist Children and Youth

Urban Saints – Matt Summerfield from Urban Saints helped our conference to think about the impact of multi-media technology on children and young people, and is a leading member of the Children Matter forum which CYM plays an active part in. Urban Saints

Scripture Union – Passionate about children, young people and the Bible, Scripture Union staff have contributed to module teaching as well as our annual conference.

Oxford Diocese – Although CYM work with the Church of England on a national level, we are proud of the warm relationship we have with the local diocesan team, and in particular Ian Macdonald, the Diocesan Youth Advisor, and Yvonne Morris, the Children’s Advisor, who have both contributed to our annual conference. Oxford Diocese

We also have a working relationship with:

St Gregory the Great Catholic School  –  mayBe

North Oxfordshire Academy  –  Children Matter!

Ian has run Professional Formation Groups for our youth-work students for many years, and Yvonne was part of our ‘Book Showcase’. Sam Richards, our Centre Director played a key role in the ‘Mind the Gap’ road show, Ian organised for volunteers in the Oxford Diocese
