Community Education - University of the West of Scotland

This programme is suited to those already involved or interested in working with people in communities in order to facilitate critical and social education. Learning about theories, principles and practices of Community Education, you will examine concepts that underpin equality and social justice. Practice learning placement is integral to the programme and is developed through experiential learning in a Community Education setting. Students can use existing voluntary or paid work for two out of three placements. UWS graduates move into roles as youth workers, adult educators and community development practitioners in areas such as community health, regeneration, family learning, facilities management, home school partnership work, development of achievement awards, managing national and international charities, teaching in further and higher education, working across the statutory, voluntary, community and public sectors at home and abroad. The BA and BA Hons are approved as professional qualifying programmes in CLD by the Community Learning and Development Standards Council for Scotland.
