About Youth and Community
Why choose us?
The Cass School of Education and Communities is an innovative and supportive school with a strong research culture and a reputation for providing responsive solutions to diverse educational needs. The MA in Youth and Community is professionally validated by the National Youth Agency – the national agency for youth work in England. As well as a Master’s qualification, successful students leave us with accredited Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) youth work status.
With 600 mandatory hours of practice learning added to UEL-based learning, it is a demanding, but rewarding, commitment. You will develop the ability to build confidence and trust in others, deal with challenging behaviour and engage, support and mentor young people in London – a dynamic environment for youth and community work.You will apply this knowledge in the field – for example, organising workshops or informal learning activities in youth projects and schools, developing young people’s inter-personal skills, or working with partner organisations, such as the Youth Offending Service or housing associations.
