About this course


Course option

1.0year

Full-time | 2020

The BA (Hons) programme provides the continued opportunity for you to critically engage with the theoretical principles of working with and supporting young people, many of whom face diverse and complex issues. The aquisition of knowledge is again expected to be transferred to the work place. A continuation from your Foundation Degree in relation to reflection on your practice will enable you to make positive changes not only to your own professional development but also the development of the young people you work with. This will ultimately benefit the young people you work with along with the wider society. Completion of the BA
(Hons) degree will enable you to confidently work within the sector in a managerial / supervisory capacity or enter the field of specialist youth work in a variety of settings e.g. education, therapeutic, criminal justice, mental health. Topics examined on this programme include the rights of young people, management of services and assessing risk and ensuring the protection of young people. The Dissertation module, which runs for the duration of this programme, offers you the opportunity to conduct a small-scale research project into a specific area of your choice. This provides you with the opportunity to change practice within the sector whilst enhancing your understanding of the complexities faced not only with research, but also the challenges faced by young people in today?s society.

On the successful completion of your BA (Hons) degree possible routes of further academic progression can include post graduate study in areas such as social work, teaching and youth and community work.
