It will provide participants with a range of knowledge and skills both to grow in their personal faith journey and to share their faith with others in both formal and informal youth ministry settings. They will broaden their knowledge and its application in catechesis; in prayer and worship; in spiritual development; in pastoral care of self and others; youth ministry legalities, programs, and resources; and communication skills, preparing them to participate in youth ministry and leadership within the Catholic Church.
To achieve the Diploma of Catholic Youth Ministry, the student must complete fourteen units – six core and eight electives.
Up to two elective units may be substituted from another accredited course or training package. The imported electives must be relevant to the work outcome, local industry requirements and the qualification level. Any elective chosen must contribute to a valid, industry-supported vocational outcome.
This course runs as an internship so students must have an active involvement in Youth Ministry. To achieve this course, the student must be involved in youth ministry for a minimum of 6 hours per week (or equivalent). Total practicum hours must be at least 220 hours for course completion.
