Community and Partnerships (MSc)

Course Description

In recent years, there has been growing emphasis on an intelligence led approach to delivering community safety and reducing crime and disorder.

Data analysis, community consultation and other methods are needed to ensure that resources achieve maximum effect, while engaging with communities in delivery. This flexible qualification is for professionals who require specific training and development to meet the challenges of such an approach.

Tuition is designed not only to equip you with the latest knowledge from the field, but also the skills to research and apply this in your workplace. Achieving this award will recognise the value of the higher level, professional activities conducted by practitioners in this field. It will be of particular interest to those working in community safety, policing, crime prevention, fire and rescue services, youth offending, probation, health services or local authorities.

Throughout the course, you will have full support and access to tutors with experience in this field. Discussion sessions are also built into the course, which are ideal to exchange good practice and work-related ideas with fellow professionals from across the country.
