The entry requirements listed here are our typical offer for this course if you wish to begin studying with us in 2017. They should be used as a general guide.
We operate a flexible admissions policy – this means that you could receive a lower conditional offer than the typical offer, informed by our assessment of your complementary non-academic achievements and experiences. For courses that require interview or portfolio review, this may also be considered in the level of any conditional offer that follows if your application is successful.
Applicants are normally expected to meet the following requirements:
- significant experience (normally one to two years) working as a youth worker or other relevant experience.
- current employment for at least six hours per week as a youth worker in a paid or voluntary capacity
- successful completion of foundation-level youth work training or related recognition of skills and understanding in youth work (normally assessed at NVQ levels 2 or 3).
- computer access with word processing facilities and internet.
- you will need a qualified and experienced mentor for each full year. If the cost is not met by your sponsoring employer, you may need to pay up to £600-£700 per year in addition to your course fees. Consent from your employer to support mentoring, assessment and workplace learning opportunities is required.
