The EWC has appointed Andy Borsden to drive Quality Mark forward

Andy Borsden is the newly appointed development officer for the Quality Mark for Youth Work in Wales. He is also a CWVYS Vice President, and we’d like to extend our congratulations to him!

He will play a vital role in evaluating and shaping the future of the award working with the wider youth work sector.

A former Principal Youth Officer and lead assessor for the Quality Mark, Andy joins the EWC with over 35 years’ experience as a youth worker.

Having run youth provision as a volunteer and led teams of youth workers working with the most vulnerable young people, Andy understands the importance of developing and maintaining a quality service.

The Welsh Government commissioned the EWC earlier this year to deliver and develop the Quality Mark alongside ETS Wales.

A review of the Quality Mark is underway to look at how it can be strengthened. The deadline for participating in the online questionnaire closes on 30 June 2020.
