The Youth and Community Work Masters Degree has been designed to offer a distinctive, professionally recognised qualification that reflects the changing landscape of work with young people.
Practitioners holding the JNC professional qualification can top up their careers by applying for APEL for the below modules and completing a 60 credit Work Based Synthesis to achieve a full Masters. Talk to us for more information.
The main employers of youth workers are no longer dedicated local authority youth services but multi-agency teams, voluntary sector initiatives, social enterprises and a vast array of other organisations, sectors and settings that value youth work skills.
The course is designed to meet the needs of these new and emerging delivery arrangements. It will meet an anticipated demand from existing youth work practitioners in the travel to Northampton region for higher academic qualifications plus evident demand from recent undergraduates in associated disciplines for the opportunity to gain the nationally recognised JNC professional qualification in Youth and Community Work.
The taught programme delivery element is designed to take place on one single day per week in order that post-graduate students have opportunity to either continue in their current related employment or access applied practice opportunities.
The course is innovative and has been carefully designed to enable students to explore a range of distinctive issues, which are fundamental to youth and community work in the twenty first century. Module titles integral to the programme include:
- Youth Work Principles and Practice (20 credits)
- Youth Empowerment, Social Action and Research Methods (20 credits)
- Young People and Offending (20 credits)
- Youth and Community Work – Field Work (20 credits)
- Work Based Synthesis (60 credits)
