I would like to know more about Community Development and Youth Work/Studies courses.
Thank you for enquiring about the courses we offer in the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing. At the University of Bolton, we pride ourselves on our student-focused approach to learning, supporting your career ambitions, and preparing you for graduate employment. Quite simply, we ensure that you enjoy your time at University; through quality teaching, passionate lecturers, supportive environments and great facilities.
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.
At the University of Bolton we understand our students have different requirements and pride ourselves on the positive and supportive learning environment we provide. Being voted No. 1 for Student Satisfaction for the past three years (Complete University Guide, North West) is a testament to our approach; welcome to #UniAsItShouldBe.
We are proud of our work on-campus to ensure our students can enjoy #UniAsItShouldBe, COVID-secure.
