Course Description

The Diploma can be studied over two years (full-time) or up to four years (part-time). Students may wish to exit with this qualification or use it as the first level towards completion of the degree.

This fantastic placement-based pathway will equip you for working in youth ministry, and 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 vocational 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 through the lens and principles of the Christian faith. You will be studying alongside those on the BA(Hons) Theology (Youth and Community) course and other pathways which provides an intentional depth of learning and engagement with people serving in a range of ministry contexts as well as youth ministry.

  • 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 pathway into the degree-level, professionally validated BA(Hons) Theology (Youth and Community) course is possible.
