Course summary

The MA Working for Children and Young People (Youth Work Initial Qualifying) incorporating the Postgraduate Diploma Youth and community work (Initial Qualifying) course is professionally endorsed by Education Training Skills Wales (ETS), and will enable you to qualify as a professional Youth and Community worker in one academic year. The course has been designed to reflect the changing statutory and voluntary social and education sector that embraces professionals working in Youth Work, community development, health, education, social care and youth justice.

The course focuses on inter-professional practice, and how the needs of children, young people, families and communities can best be met in a rapidly changing policy, strategic and operational context. Students will also develop leadership skills, together with a greater understanding of the policy and practice context of this specific area of professional work, through both academic learning and practical placements.
