Professionals & Practitioners

Professionals & Practitioners

Hub na nÓg can offer support, guidance and training to professionals and practitioners working with children and young people.

We can support you in including the voices of children and young people in your work

Hub na nÓg can help professionals and practitioners working in all areas relevant to children and young people to incorporate their voices in decisions that affect their lives. Practitioners were a key stakeholder group in the creation of the Participation Framework; for the development of the Everyday Spaces checklist, for example, Hub na nÓg conducted focus groups with early learning and care and school aged childcare practitioners, primary school teachers, secondary school teachers, social workers and family support workers, youth workers, paediatric nurses and Garda Juvenile Liaison Officers. Here you can find the checklist, the Framework, other resources, and information on training and mentorship
