Course Description

This fantastic placement-based pathway can be studied full-time or part-time and will equip you for working in youth and community settings, recognising that it is important for Christians involved in youth and community work to be:

  • Theologically astute. Exploring our understanding who God is – God’s priorities, values and purposes – to guide us in the work we do
  • Contextually aware. Understanding how the world is changing and how people’s thinking is shaped by the world they inhabit
  • Competent in practice. Acquiring the particular skills required in working with people, including listening, group work and evaluation

This degree-level vocational and professional pathway will build on student’s prior experiences and equip Christian youth and community workers for a range of ministries. Carefully tailored to deliver a blend of specialist knowledge and skills training, along with extensive opportunities for putting them into practice, students will reflect upon the relationship between theology and youth and community work practice.

  • Strong focus on practice development, placements and employability.
  • Useful for those who are wanting to serve in churches or Christian organisations, or who want to understand how the Christian faith relates to the field of youth and community work.
  • Small group work, study skills support and individual tutorials.
  • Teaching staff actively engaged in youth and community practice, research and development nationally and internationally.
  • Positive commitment to equality and the development of good practice in diverse contexts.
  • A range of electives from all disciplines to choose after the first year.
