Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Science)

The National Youth Work Advisory Committee, NYMAC, and the Youth Council for Northern Ireland are in the process of finalising a joint proposal for criteria for the professional endorsement of youth work training in Ireland. The NYWAC is seeking the views of the Higher Education and Training Awards Council and the Further Education and Training Awards Council on their draft proposals. When these views have been received, the proposal will be submitted for my consideration.
