SACRED HEART STAFF DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME

Child and Youth Care workers’ Training and Graduation:

The Management of Sacred Heart Child and Youth Care Centre strongly believe in staff training at all levels. In to render quality of services, Sacred Heart has trained at least 6 Child and Youth Care Workers through the National Association of Child Care Work (NACCW). The Child and Youth Care Workers underwent a 14 modules training over the period of two years. This training enables the Child Care Workers to engage effectively with our young people and their families.

On 31 May 2013 Sacred Heart Child Care workers and many others from all over Kwa-Zulu Natal graduated with an HWSETA certificate on Child and Youth Care Work at Durban International Convention Centre (ICC). We are grateful to Missio Acchen in Germany for funding this very important Project.
