Leeds Beckett University, in partnership with the National Youth Agency, has launched a new part time route to a professional Youth Work qualification. The new BA (Hons) Youth Work and Community Development course will be available in both Leicester, from NYA’s offices, and Leeds and will require attendance at the University one day per week for four years.
More information about the programme is available on the Leeds Beckett University website. The programme provides practitioners the opportunity to transfer experience and practice in youth work into a professional degree level qualification while working in a youth work related field.
If you think you may be interested in applying please complete the expression of interest form and return this to Alkesh Patel or send by post to Alkesh Patel, National Youth Agency, 19-23 Humberstone Road, Leicester, LE5 3JG.
The programme is eligible for student finance loans in the same way as other full time youth work programmes, even if you are currently employed. For more information visit www.gov.uk/student-finance
