The NUI Certificate in Youth Arts course gave me a lot of practical tools which I have brought into my own youth work practice. I have reused or taken aspects of modules and integrated them into my own youth work programs. The variety of tutors, guest speakers and site visits kept me interested, focused and inspired. Put simply, they joined up a lot of scattered dots and developed a new language for understanding and articulating just what Youth Arts means to me and what it means to our culture and society and its place in youth work.
