We are now taking applications for our next Cohort of our Working with Gangs & Youth Violence course. If you take a particular interest in working with young people impacted by criminal exploitation, youth violence and gangs, this could be the course for you. Likewise, please share amongst your network if you know of someone who this course would appeal to.

If you're anything like us, you can probably see that the way our society at large works with and supports young, vulnerable and marginalised young people is overdue a change. And that's why at ACT CIC, we have the ambitious goal of facilitating that change.

This is achieved through our mission of providing existing and future practitioners just like you with the tools and training to better respond to the issues of gangs and youth violence within your communities.

So in 8 years of running our Working with Gangs and Youth Violence Courses across Europe, and now the Caribbean, we've trained over 400 practitioners who have been accredited with widely recognised level 3 qualifications. Our graduates include:

  • Educators
  • Social & care workers
  • Health professionals
  • Mentors
  • Sports Leaders
  • Youth workers
  • Parents 
  • Community members 
  • Ex-offenders 

You'll find case studies and testimonials from our previous learners on each of the course breakdowns (links below).

Our Courses Are Now Available Online

We have recently made our courses available online through our dedicated virtual portal, which means you can now study this course from the comfort of your own home, with access to the whole course from a laptop, tablet or mobile phone enabling you to study anytime from anywhere.

We Have Two Courses Available

Our Blended Learning Certificate (28 credits) & the Distance Learning Award (10 credits). Both courses can be completed without ever having to leave your home or office.

The Award Qualification can be completed within 12 to 24 weeks (depending on your own study schedule). The Award Qualification is suitable for people who:

  • Already have experience in working with young people
  • Hold a level 3 or higher education qualification and/or have some understanding but want to specialise to improve their understanding and effectiveness in their professional role.

This course is perfect for busy professionals, who have limited time and/or control of their daily schedules because there are no specific timetables, which gives you the freedom to study when and how you want.
