Youth and Community Work (with Foundation Year)

Newman University, Birmingham

UCAS Course code L53F

Overview

Newman University has developed an innovative foundation year for their social science degrees. The pre-degree year of this four year course, if passed, leads into the same study programme as the 3 year joint honours degree course in Psychology and Counselling Studies.

This foundation year enables those unable to access the traditional UCAS tariff requirements for a three year degree, an alternative route into beginning and ultimately gaining an honours degree.

This is one of the few professional youth work courses in the West Midlands which will provide you with the opportunity to meet national standards. You will benefit from Newman’s considerable experience and reputation in the areas of teacher education, child development and community engagement and be taught by a strong youth and community work led teaching team, most of whom have had direct experience in the field and present at international conferences. Studying Youth and Community Work at Newman will not only enable you to gain professional Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) recognition, which you require to practise as a youth worker in the UK, but you also get to choose an optional pathway in a practice-based setting.
