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.


**cost of accommodation, if required, is not included in student fees and need to be met by the student.
