Youth Work and Community Development (JNC)

Locally, nationally and globally, young people and communities are having to deal with difficult and challenging situations. You will develop your understanding of social care and services for children and families through an extensive range of taught modules and completing 800 hours of assessed youth and community practice placements, as you build the expertise needed to transform people's lives for the better. You will have the opportunity to work with individuals and groups anywhere in the UK or overseas and gain a professional youth and community work qualification validated by the National Youth Agency (NYA) and recognised by the Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC), which endorses professional qualifications for youth and community workers. You also have the opportunity to transfer to the BA (Hons) Working with Children, Young People & Families or BSc (Hons) Social Care, Justice & Recovery course on completion of your first year, without the need to repeat modules.
