Community Youth Work

Ulster University - Magee

Community Youth Work

We provide students with the knowledge and skills for professional practice. We facilitate the development of reflective and effective practitioners through a range of assessment methods. The course enhances the professional skills and employability of community youth workers. You will be encouraged to challenge and engage critically in community youth work issues through informed and innovative methods of teaching and learning.

There are a range of career options available to graduates and these include opportunities across the statutory and community and voluntary sectors. Graduates will be qualified Community Youth Workers equipped to undertake key roles to the required standard.

Students are normally in part-time (16+ hours p/w) or full-time, paid employment and many will change employment during or following completion of the course. Other students are promoted to managerial or project-based leadership roles.
