This is an exciting course, specially designed for those wanting to work positively with children, young people, marginalised groups and communities. You will learn youth work methods, values and engagement skills for working with individuals and groups to support their personal, social and political development. Through this course you can gain a professional qualification endorsed by Education Training Standards Wales with over a third of your time in placement activities. Successful completion of the degree and attainment of the JNC professional qualification will allow you to register with the Education Workforce Council in Wales as a Youth Worker. As well as placement opportunities in Wales and the UK, there are also opportunities to do a part-funded placement through the erasmus programme with a university in Europe. The youth and community department at Wrexham Glyndwr University is regarded as the “home of youth work in Wales”, having offered education and training to the youth and community sector for more than 39 years. As such the department has excellent links with employers across North Wales, North West England, and the Midlands, and it works in partnership with organisations across the statutory, voluntary and third sector. Please be aware it may be necessary to work outside of normal working hours, e.g. during evenings or over weekends, whilst on placement due to the nature of this profession.
