Amplify is an inspiring course designed to equip those working with children and young people in a Christian context. Over the 6 months, students will participate in a blend of lectures, discussions, assignments and presentations in order to develop their expertise in children and youth work.

The Sessions

The Amplify course will start in the Autumn term of 2019. The training sessions are delivered over two residential weekends, and a final day ending with a celebration and commissioning.


Amplify will provide participants with an opportunity to build on their foundations in children and youth work, as well as offering a starting point for exploring deeper study. Amplify is delivered in an environment and setting where children’s and youth leaders will learn together but some elements of each module will be taught separately. This is to allow for both helpful conversations across the disciplines and specialist input when it is needed.


Participants are required to complete these modules by undertaking a number of assignments, which will include presentations, and creating a reflective journal/portfolio of evidence which will grow throughout the course, demonstrating learning and understanding of each module in full.

Network Evenings

Network Evenings take place termly and include training from a guest speaker. They are a brilliant way to meet new people and you will leave feeling excited by what you’ve heard and learnt. We have just completed our first term so watch this space for new dates coming soon.
