Student Profiles

Daniel Townsend

Learning from academic staff who have similar youth work experiences like Cez James really helps you to relate to, understand, and put into context what youth and community work is all about. Lecturers have helped me to explore other aspects of youth work, which I have introduced into my workplace.

Joanne Kendrick

Graduated in 2020

The course modules in the first year were interesting and covered all the relevant information that I needed to link with practice. Regular reflective practice, support from tutors and from my fieldwork facilitator, assisted my journey of working with young people and I was able to demonstrate clear progression throughout my portfolio.
