‘The Education Workforce Council (EWC), in partnership with Education Training Standards (ETS) Wales, has been re-commissioned by Welsh Government to deliver and develop the nationally recognised Quality Mark for Youth Work (QMYW) in Wales until March 2025.

The QMYW is a national award which supports and recognises improving standards in the provision and performance of organisations that deliver youth work services. In order to receive the accreditation, youth work organisations must self-assess against a set of quality standards, and pass an external assessment.

Since being first awarded the contract in 2020, the EWC has:

  • completed 60 assessments
  • trained 297 youth workers/youth support workers
  • trained a pool of 46 assessors

A tweet from EWC read;

‘We are proud to announce that we have been re-commissioned by @WelshGovernment to deliver and develop the Quality Mark for Youth Work in Wales, until March 2025. ‘
