The Postgraduate Diploma Youth and Community Work has been designed to reflect the professional, policy, social, and cultural contexts that youth work within the UK is currently engaged. It meets the professional development needs of a growing statutory and voluntary social and education sector that embraces for example, professionals working in youth work, community development, health, education, social care and youth justice. As part of the course, you’ll have to chance to undertake two work placements to enhance your career progression and employability.
