·       Health and social care

·       Police

·       Fire and Rescue

·       Early years such as playgroups, schools and children’s centres

·       Criminal justice

·       Older people’s services

·       Charities/organisations which deal with vulnerable children, young people and adults


The graduates, who are drawn from all over the country achieved their qualification through YFL Training. They received their certificates at a Graduation Ceremony at Sheffield University on 19th June 2016.  Dean Thomas, Managing Director at YFL Training said, “We are so proud to have been able to support the learners in the recognition of their skills and knowledge through these extensive qualifications”.


Adrian Jackson, Managing Director at SFJ Awards said: “We congratulate those learners who have achieved these important qualifications.  We recognise the hard work that they have put in and they should rightly be proud of their achievement.”

The qualifications were much sought after and endorsed by over 25,000 employers in the Early Help field here in the UK.”
