The MA Youth and Community Work (JNC) programme provides a unique opportunity to obtain a JNC professional youth work qualification, allowing students to register with the Education Workforce Council in Wales, and practice as a youth worker throughout the UK and further afield.
This programme is ideal for practitioners who would like to gain the JNC professional qualification, but may already hold a Bachelor’s Degree in another subject. The programme covers core topics, principles and values required to be a professional youth worker, whilst also allowing you to tailor your learning to your specialist area of practice.
The youth and community department at Wrexham Glyndwr University is regarded as the “home of youth work in Wales”, having offered education and training to the youth and community sector for more than 41 years. As such the department has excellent links with employers across North Wales, North West England, and the Midlands, and it works in partnership with organisations across the statutory, voluntary and third sector.
Delivered through a blended learning approach students will start each semester with an introductory residential weekend at our Wrexham Campus**, and then continue learning online with support from dedicated tutors – allowing you to study around your home and work commitments.
*Subject to validation As part of its continuous quality assurance and enhancement, the University has new and updated courses in development. The details of these courses are in the process of being finalised and are awaiting their turn in the approval cycle, known as the ‘validation’ process. As soon as the programmes are validated the details of the course will be confirmed. The majority of new courses that are still ‘subject to validation’ are approved by their validation process; however, this is not guaranteed and should the course not go ahead as planned, or be significantly amended, you will be informed by the university and assistance will be provided to those who have been offered a place to find a suitable alternative course either at Wrexham Glyndwr University or at another provider.
