Friday, 5 June, 2015

Solihull College has partnered with Newman University in Birmingham to offer a new Youth and Community Work Degree at their Blossomfield Campus in Solihull. The College already works with Newman University to offer a range of courses and the partnership is expanding to offer students courses to suit their needs.

The Youth and Community Work Degree will give students Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) recognition. JNC for Youth and Community Workers is the body which sets the national framework used to grade and pay youth work jobs. Students will also gain a BA (Hons) Youth and Community Work qualification.

Solihull College will be running the course in partnership with Newman University from September 2015. The course will include a variety of modules including study skills, youth policy and working in communities as well as optional modules which include spirituality, counselling and crime.

The Youth and Community Work Degree at Solihull College offers individuals the opportunity to progress into careers which incorporate traditional and non-traditional youth and community work. Students will be able to progress into youth work careers involving faith, sports, education and counselling.
