Course description

If you want to be a positive force in the lives of young people and their communities this is the degree for you. Youth work and community development processes and values enable young people to make decisions about their lives, build personal resilience and raise aspirations.

This is one of the largest professional youth and community work training courses in the country providing you with a challenging and worthwhile career that will:

  • Prepare you for professional roles in public, voluntary and private organisations working with young people and communities.
  • Achieve a JNC professional qualification in youth work endorsed by the National Youth Agency (NYA) and an endorsement for community development by the

  • Undertake an exciting pathway in your final year to hone your knowledge and skills around particular groups, which could also include a further professional qualification in youth justice if you select that pathway (Youth Justice in Effective Practice Certificate - YJEPC).

With its emphasis on innovation and effective informal engagement, this course equips you with the professional skills and knowledge to have a positive impact on people’s lives.
