What’s involved?

Before applying for the Playwork Employment Academy, you will be offered the opportunity to talk to playwork employers about what the job entails and the terms and conditions of employment.

After applying and securing employment, participants will take part in the Playwork qualification to provide the skills and qualification needed for a career in playwork.


Training and qualifications within the Playwork Employment Academy are open to anyone living in the Belfast City Council area currently out of work or working less than 16 hours a week. This includes people who are on a current European Social Funded programme.
