Course summary

Course Overview

Our postgraduate programme in Youth and Community Work at Cardiff Met is professionally endorsed by the Education Training Standards (ETS) Wales and recognised by the Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) for Youth and Community Workers. Students on this programme tend to develop into a highly supportive, friendly and analytical professional group. On completion, graduates will significantly enhance their employment opportunities in the field of youth and community work.

MA Education: Youth and Community Work (with JNC professional endorsement)

This programme has a professionally endorsed Postgraduate Diploma in Youth and Community work embedded within it. The course offers students the opportunity to gain a full academic MA as well as a professional qualification in youth and community work. As with the PG Dip in Youth and Community work it is particularly suitable for graduates who have found themselves working in the field of youth and community work and who wish to gain a professional qualification. The programme requires students to undertake two separate professionally supervised placements in the field of youth and community work. Students can study the MA on either a part-time or a full-time basis, attending the university to undertake the taught modules and tutorials. The course is endorsed by Education Training Standards (ETS) Wales) for youth work.

Assessment

Students will be assessed on both their youth and community work-based practice and their academic assignments through a range of assessment types including essays, presentations, debates, group exercises, audio-visual work, fieldwork observation, a reflective practice portfolio and viva voce. Plus a dissertation (for MA routes).

Employability & Careers

The programme leads to both an academic MA and a professional qualification in youth and community work through its endorsement for youth work by ETS Wales. The embedded professional qualification significantly enhances employment opportunities in the field of youth and community work whilst the MA study significantly enhances skills of research and analysis in the field.
