Course summary


NTU has a national reputation as a leading institution for teaching and research in relation to working with young people. BA (Hons) Youth Work is for students wishing to work with young people, and is professionally endorsed by the national Youth Agency. The course combines full-time academic study with placements and a practice pathway for JNC qualification, which is the recognised entry route for professional Youth Work. The study of youth has wide application within the field of education, social work, politics and psychology, which generates insights, research and theoretical knowledge of what it means to be young.

What you’ll study

In Year One students will engage with the core foundation to understanding and working with young people. The introductory modules include a range of academic skills development and the application of theory to practice.

How you’re taught

Our teaching year is broken down into three terms, giving you plenty of time to get to grips with each module, but the placement modules are extended over the summer period to accommodate the condensed programme.

Structured teaching is delivered through a combination of traditional lectures and seminars. The smaller group seminars provide opportunities to develop skills in problem-solving, group working, analysis, debating and presentation, and to discuss a wide range of views. You will also learn from audio-visual presentations, information technology-based exercises, and practical experience.

Students on the professionally endorsed pathway are allocated practice based supervisors to support learning in the work place.

Careers and employability

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be prepared with skills for practical application and research experience for working with young people. Students will also be able to apply for further study at Masters Level. For example: MA Youth Work Leadership and Practice: MA Social Work or MA Career Development and a wider variety of other courses.

On the professionally endorsed pathway, students will have the skills, knowledge and experience to be qualified Youth Work practitioners.
