Soon you could be working towards a dual accreditation from two nationally-recognised professional bodies in your Community Development and Youth Work degree course. Recognised by the Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) and endorsed by the Endorsement Standards Board for Community Development (ESB) and National Youth Agency (NYA), an Undergraduate BA programme at the University of Bolton involves 800 hours of fieldwork practice, work-based learning through fieldwork placements, and academic studies that support the development of knowledge and skills for practice.
Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.
Fieldwork placements or work-based learning could be in a number of distinct settings that work to improve the lives of people in communities and young people, preparing you to adapt to the changing environments in which you may be employed in future. More detailed information can be found here.
