Subject

Youth and community work

**This course is primarily designed for face to face learning with you attending your lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the Campus is closed TEC Partnership will continue to deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted with some lessons happening in small groups and others happening using online sessions and support.**

The programme is focussed on practice and will prepare students for the challenges of working in this vital and frequently fluid area within both the public and private sector, equipping all students with the knowledge, skills, understanding and critical instincts to work as an informed, confident and responsible professional. The course draws on a range of local and international perspectives, and theory from a range of areas such as leadership, safeguarding, solution focussed practice and child and youth support giving students sound knowledge and skills which they can apply to the area of practice they currently work in or for future employment. The programme will incorporate a practice placement element, with students completing 125 placement hours and undertaking an Action Research Project for their final assessment.

Teaching and learning in this programmes is centred on practice. All examples used in the programme have a base in the real world. In some modules the students will reflect on their own practice using real world experience to inform ideas; in others simulated case studies are used so that the students can apply theoretical knowledge to their work. In the action research project students get to enact and assess a change in the real world.

Modules

Leading change in organisations
Safeguarding
Action Research Project
Solution Focused Practice
Childhood and Youth Support

Assessment methods

The assessment approach is designed to ensure the student’s breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding will be assessed summatively through industry relevant tasks directly linked to practice. These tasks include the application of theory to current practice. The nature of the discipline means that reflexivity and reflection are key areas of assessment alongside essays, solution focussed practice, reports, an action research project and presentations.

The assessments are designed to allow students to apply theory to practice. As a level 6 programme there is an expectation of criticality, both in their work but also using academic theories. In all assessments students are expected to show criticality whilst bridging theory and practice. The assessments are designed so that students develop their academic research and writing skills during the 1st trimester. In the assessment for the Leading Change module students are given the opportunity to develop their report writing skills particularly around the inclusion of criticality to carry forward in to future assessments.

A 125 hours placement must also be completed as part of this Top-Up degree.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
