Please note that due to COVID-19, this course will be delivered on-campus with reduced student numbers and physical distancing measures in place.

This course is suitable if you volunteering or working as a Youth Worker and you want to gain a qualification or if you are interested in finding out more about working with young people.

We offer the opportunity to study two nights a week to achieve three Higher National Units that make up the group award. The units are as follows:

Youth Work – Understanding and Exploring Youth Work
Youth Work – Engaging with Young People
Youth Work – Delivering Youth Work

The PDA in Youth Work will enhance opportunities in the following areas:

  • Voluntary Sector
  • Community Education
  • Social Work
  • Outdoor Education
  • Health Promotion

  • NC/HNC Working with Communities

No formal qualifications, the course is aimed at employees or volunteers with little or no experience of Youth Work or staff within the CLD sector who have no formal qualifications but are looking to improve on their professional practice, keep up-to-date with legislation and develop best practice within their own working environment.
