About

This Youth and Community Work (with JNC Recognition) programme at London Metropolitan University is a National Youth Agency (NYA) and Endorsements Standards Board (ESB) approved qualification. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The Youth and Community Work (with JNC Recognition) programme at London Metropolitan University leads to Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) recognition, which means you’ll become a JNC-qualified Professional Youth Worker and Community Development Practitioner when you successfully complete the course.

If you already hold JNC recognition, or have 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 (Advanced Practice) MSc instead.

If you’re looking to start your career in the sector or want to increase your employment opportunities, this is the perfect course for you.

You may be working as a youth and/or community worker already in the voluntary, public or independent sector. This course will lead to JNC recognition, which can open the door to opportunities in this sector.

Recent graduates are now employed in full-time positions in youth and community work. Because of this, they’re now able to offer placements and JNC supervision in various voluntary and third-sector organisations.

Where this course can take you

Once you’ve successfully completed the Youth and Community Work (with JNC Recognition) MSc at London Metropolitan University, you’ll be able to practise as a JNC-qualified Professional Youth Worker and Community Development Practitioner. Due to the practical nature of this course, you’ll have strong employability connections with former students and placement organisations.

Our graduates have gone on to work in a range of organisations, including local authority social services departments, mental health trusts, drugs and alcohol services, children’s centres, social prescribing, and in A&E with young victims of knife crime, among others.

You could also progress to senior youth and community positions, including management and supervisory roles. If you demonstrate research potential on this course, you may also be encouraged to undertake doctoral studies.
