Course details

You’ll learn in a variety of different settings and ways and use a wide range of skills and techniques to allow you to do this. In order to begin this process, there is an induction period at the start of the programme that helps you establish supportive networks. Teaching and learning seminars are usually arranged on an average of three full days each week, with the rest of the week allocated for preparatory directed self-learning. Most modules follow a similar format, especially during the first year of the programme. The learning in each module usually involves a combination of preparatory directed self-learning taught sessions and seminars. The student portal provides access to the teaching and learning material and it also has the facility for communication between you and your fellow students as well as your module leader and teachers. This will allow you to work collaboratively and to have your questions addressed. This programme is not part of the Integrated Masters Scheme.

Students also work to understand the policies and practices which aim to counter discrimination and encourage equality in the community.

This dynamic course offers an in-depth look at the profession in its current state, encouraging students to identify new strategies which can bring about positive change in the future. The course leads to a nationally recognised qualification from the Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC), as part of the University’s continued commitment to boosting students’ employability and professional confidence.

This intensive course helps students to understand how communities function and how they change according to political, social and economical changes. Students are encouraged to explore historical and contemporary evidence and theory to develop a well-rounded, expert approach to youth and community work.

Youth and community workers are in demand across a wide range of agencies and settings both locally and nationally.
