Gain the skills you need for the complex and ever-evolving educational landscape.
You’ll study educational processes, systems and approaches within cultural, societal and political contexts. You can study towards an accredited Forest School certification, too. This prepares you to work outside with children, taking into account a range of extra needs, and gives you a valuable extra qualification.
You’ll build your experience through work placements and project-based learning. And could spend a semester studying abroad at our partner universities in countries renowned for high-quality childcare.
Study your way, selecting either a central programme or an optional pathway. The SENDI pathway centres on the exclusion, discrimination, and barriers to learning through the restructuring of cultures, policies and practices. YCW gives you the opportunity to gain an honours degree and the professional JNC qualification in Youth Work. In TESOL, you’ll develop and integrate key English language teaching and academic knowledge alongside practical and varied community-based teaching experience.
