Description

If you enjoy being with children and young people and are willing to learn as you go, you could find working with them a worthwhile and rewarding profession. This book looks at the growing number of opportunities there are for working with young people outside the areas of teaching, social work and healthcare. Giving information on a broad range of jobs, from working in playgroups, nurseries and residential homes to youth training, careers advice and juvenile justice work, it should help you to decide, whether you are entering or re-entering the world of work, if a career working with young people is for you. Clearly describing the jobs available in this expanding area of employment, this fully revised and updated edition gives you up-to-the-minute advice while case studies show you exactly what people in various jobs actually do. With advice on getting into the profession, developing your career, and with contact addresses and information on useful courses, the book is the ideal starting point for anyone wanting a rewarding career in this diverse field.show more
