Do you want to work with young people? If your ambition is to be a professional youth worker then our Youth and Community Work Degree may be the route to your success. We have a long history of delivering high quality Youth & Community Work programmes in collaboration with regional employers for over 20 years. The BA programme is held in high regard both regionally and nationally; the National Youth Agency commented on the all-round strength of the programme and in particular on its focus on professional formation. Our Youth and Community Work degree has been validated by the National Youth Agency (NYA) and therefore successful completion of the programme will not only enable you to achieve an academic qualification but also the professional qualification for youth work (JNC). The course is continually monitored in conjunction with employers in the wider youth workforce in order to ensure that it reflects the changing patterns of youth & community work thus preparing students for practicing today. You will undertake placements in all three years, and these can take place in local, national and international settings. You will receive excellent academic and pastoral support from teaching staff who are professionals with substantial experience in the field of youth and community work.
