Community Learning and Development MEd or PgDip

Course content

Are you an educator of any description? Do you work in Schools, youth work, community arts, adult and community learning, educational challenges, housing, planning, social work or link professions or organisations? This programme offers you the opportunity to further develop your skills and knowledge towards enriching your practice and promotional opportunities within this sector. The programme does not impede on your ability to work, in fact it is a complementary study programme which you can use in your working life or voluntary work.

The programme contains a mix of online and campus (blended) learning and this opens up opportunities to work with the Creative Learning Team at Aberdeen City Council and other departments and it ensures that skills and knowledge you gain are of industry relevant standard. The programme is also a work based route to obtain the Community Learning and Development professional qualification.

This programme is of relevance to those already working within Community Learning and Development or individuals who want to move into these areas and do offer some voluntary work or experience in order to progress into this field. It can be a hugely rewarding area in terms of educational value to individuals and communities and progression routes for those people either within work or social experiences which add to their employability and life experience. There are many charities, heritage attractions, museums and other organisations which rely on community involvement to educate others.
