Why choose this course?

This is an exciting course, specially designed for those wanting to work positively with children, young people, marginalised groups and communities.


You will learn youth work methods, values and engagement skills for working with individuals and groups to support their personal, social and political development.


Through this course, you can gain a professional youth work qualification endorsed by Education Training Standards Wales with over a third of your time in placement activities.  Successful completion of the course will allow you to register with the Education Workforce Council in Wales as a Youth Worker. There is also the option to study a faith-based route in the first year and exit with a Certificate in Higher Education Youth and Community Work (faith-based), or to top up the full degree and JNC Qualification*.


As well as placement opportunities in Wales and the UK, there are also opportunities for a part-funded placement through the Erasmus programme.

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.


Please be aware it may be necessary to work outside of normal working hours, e.g. during evenings or over weekends, whilst on placement due to the nature of this profession.

 

*Students on the faith-based route that wish to gain the full JNC professional qualification will need to complete a further 20 credit module at level 4
