Course summary

About the course

If you would like to work with young people and help them reach their full potential, or play a part working in the community with local groups then this Youth and Community Work degree could help you get the qualification and experience you need.

Why Youth and Community Work?

  • The course is endorsed by the National Youth Agency and recognised by the Joint Negotiating Committee for Youth and Community Work. That means that on successful completion of the course you'll achieve recognised status as a professional Youth Worker. This could help you stand out from the crowd as you start your career.
  • We’ll give you the opportunity to gain a wider knowledge and understanding of government policies, as well as the current theories and strategies to do with how young people act. You’ll also have the chance to study a wide range of broader topics, including controversial issues like what society can do to prevent child sexual exploitation or violent extremism.
  • The course is designed to be an extremely practical introduction to your subject. In fact, we aim to give you at least 800 hours of practical, hands-on experience in a wide range of settings. Students have completed placements in youth projects, theatre, music or other arts-based work, high school pastoral teams and alternative education settings. Other students have been on placements in prisons, probation services, community alcohol and drug programmes and in services addressing mental health, child sexual exploitation, gangs, violence and sex and relationships education. With such an emphasis on placements and work experience, the course is a great opportunity to develop your practical knowledge and skills – exactly what employers in the real world are looking for.

Your career
