About this program

BA (Hons) Youth Work & Community Development

The course is designed in response to current changes in social policy which have transformed the nature of services for young people and community work across the UK. It offers two pathways which will put you at the forefront of latest developments in the field:
• The Youth Work Pathway, if you want to specialise in working professionally with young people and gain a nationally recognised professional award (JNC)
• The Community Development Pathway, if you’re seeking a professional community-based career working with all age ranges
• At each stage of the course you’ll undertake a nine-week placement where you’ll gain insights into different working environments, with opportunities across the country
and overseas
This course is also available with a Foundation Year.
