Designed for graduates who already hold Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) recognition, this master’s degree is perfect if you’re already working in or looking to return to the industry.
If you don’t already hold JNC recognition, or haven’t completed an existing Level 6 qualification from either the National Youth Agency (NYA) or the Endorsement and Quality Standards Boards for Community Development Learning (ESB), please see our Youth and Community Work (with JNC recognition) MSc instead.
You’ll build on your existing knowledge of the National Youth Agency (NYA) Standards of Proficiency and Community Development National Occupational Standards in a stimulating and supportive environment.
Collaboration is highly important on this course, therefore it’s important for you to share personal experiences and reflections with your classmates. Sharing these will help to broaden your perspective on various issues and build sound knowledge on effective management approaches.
