More about this course

Go one step further with this Youth and Community Work (Advanced Practice) degree from London Met.

You’ll build on your existing knowledge of the National Youth Agency (NYA) Standards of Proficiency and Community Development National Occupational Standards in a stimulating and supportive environment.

Collaboration is highly important on this course, therefore it’s important for you to share personal experiences and reflections with your classmates. Sharing these will help to broaden your perspective on various issues and build sound knowledge on effective management approaches.

Our academics will encourage you to critically engage with the tensions and challenges of current practice, both in the UK and overseas, allowing you to build a sophisticated knowledge of effective management approaches. You’ll also explore developments in the field, learn about mental health and wellbeing in young people, develop strategies to reduce violent crime, learn how to pitch for funding in times of austerity, as well as examine techniques to support staff dealing with front-line interventions.

We want you to be in charge of the direction of your study, which is why you have the flexibility to choose whether you deepen your understanding of topics directly relevant to youth and community work, or develop a specialism outside of these, such as digital communications, journalism and film-making. These skills have the potential to be transformative within the youth and community sector.

Assessment

During this course, you’ll be assessed in a variety of ways including assignments, portfolios, presentations, podcasts, case study analysis and a dissertation.

You ll also have the opportunity to explore a youth and community work related topic of your choice through your dissertation.

Professional accreditation

This course is accredited by the National Youth Agency (NYA) and the Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC). The course is also validated by the Endorsement and Quality Standards Board for Community Development Learning (ESB), which is the professional body for people working in community work and community development roles.
