Interested in working in a broad range of careers with children, young people, families and communities? We’ll give you a broad understanding of Education Studies, in addition to the knowledge and skills you’ll need to work in informal and community based settings.
There are a number of opportunities to gain hands-on work experience through placements offered in youth and community work organisations. The course has a strong emphasis on social justice, as well as the participation and empowerment of oppressed groups. With the support of experienced youth and community work practitioners, you’ll be encouraged to follow your own interests and develop your specialism in this field.
We’ll prepare you to work with young people and community groups in informal learning settings. You’ll graduate with the knowledge and skills to work in youth and community roles in a range of organisations including local authorities, non-government organisations, charities, museums, art galleries and libraries.
We believe that youth and community work is about making a difference in society and we hope that you are coming into it to be an active participant. We also want you to be a thoughtful and informed citizen who knows about the world and the society in which you live.
