Employing Children's, Family's or Youth Workers
The Mission and Discipleship Council have just produced some guidelines for employing a children's, family's or youth worker. The guide is attached, and also freely available from the Children and Youth section of the Church of Scotland website.
The guidelines are designed to help churches think through their vision and need for a paid worker, the recruitment and selection process, and how to provide management and support for the person they employ.
If you already locally employ someone in one of these roles, it would be worth looking through the guide to see if there are any ways you can do things better.
