Joint Negotiating Committee

Joint Negotiating Committee

The Joint Negotiating Committee for Youth and Community Workers (commonly known as the JNC) is a committee that endorses professional qualifications for Youth and Community workers and negotiates employment conditions for Youth and Community Workers [ [accessed 16 Feb 2007] ] .

The JNC is made up of two sides and a total of 25 members. One side represents the employers another side represents Youth and Community workers (the staff side). The employers side consists of 9 members, 6 from local government, 2 from the National Council for Voluntary Youth Services, and 1 from the Council for Wales Voluntary Youth Services. The staff side consists of 16 members, eight from the Community and Youth Workers' Union, 2 from the National Union of Teachers, 2 from the National Association of Teachers in Further and Higher Education and 4 from Unison [ [accessed 16 Feb 2007] ] .

The JNC's scope extends over all Youth and Community workers employed by UK Government, and all voluntary sector youth services that receive government grants. As such it has become the norm for new posts to require a qualification recognised by the JNC, even in the voluntary sector organisations which do not receive government funding.
