Schools work is an increasingly significant area of youth and children's ministry.

Scripture Union is offering two opportunities for Training in Schools work over the next few weeks:
23-35 September: Sheffield
30 Sept - 2 Oct: High Leigh

The Training in Schools Work (TiSW)course is designed for those with some experience of schools work as well as for those new to this area of ministry – both paid and unpaid. It is suitable for people working in either primary or secondary schools. As well as thinking about the theological underpinning of schools work there will be practical sessions and the opportunity to gain new ideas and insights.

Course content includes:

The mission context of schools work
The educational context – legislation and its implications
Developing partnerships between churches and schools
Supporting Christians in the school context
The role of Christian groups
Enabling and equipping volunteers
Assemblies, lessons, and other activities
Developing a strategy
and much more…
