This is one of the few professional youth work courses in the West Midlands which will provide you with the opportunity to meet national standards. You will benefit from Newman’s considerable experience and reputation in the areas of teacher education, child development and community engagement and be taught by a strong youth and community work led teaching team, most of whom have had direct experience in the field and present at international conferences. Studying Youth and Community Work at Newman will not only enable you to gain professional Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) recognition, which you require to practise as a youth worker in the UK, but you also get to choose an optional pathway in a practice-based setting. **How will this course be delivered?** This course is delivered by both Solihull College & University Centre, and Newman University staff. You will spend time in lectures, seminars, and workshops on both campuses. You will be enrolled at both institutions.
