Course summary

Newman University offers an innovative foundation year to complement our undergraduate degrees. Our Foundation Year is the first year of an integral four-year degree, with completion of the Foundation Year leading in to the first year of the 3 year degree in Youth and Community Work.

The foundation year enables those unable to access the traditional UCAS tariff requirements for a three year degree, an alternative route into beginning and ultimately gaining an honours degree.

You will begin with an exploration of education and society, alongside a consideration of your own educational journey, before moving onto engage with a range of topics. Over the course of the year, you will build the skills and experience to prepare you for your chosen degree.

We aim to help you understand how you can work effectively, and from a theoretically informed basis, with young people and communities both face-to-face and from a strategic perspective too. Throughout the course you will develop critical thinking and critical reflection skills which will then be applied to ‘real life’ situations through your fieldwork practice. You will undertake 800 hours of supervised fieldwork practice in a broad range of Youth and Community Work settings. This will enable you to develop your own professional skills, understanding and reputation in the field throughout your studies.

Youth and Community Work at Newman is taught by a team of JNC qualified, experienced and enthusiastic tutors that have an excellent reputation for supporting students and established strong partnerships with local employers. You will also benefit from mixing with students from a variety of backgrounds and prior learning experiences.
