Through supervised professional practice placements and university-based study, you will learn how to work with young people and the communities in which they live to help them realise their potential. This delicate and expert approach will allow you to build relationships, helping to inspire and stimulate the people you work with to make positive changes in their lives. You will develop your professional identity through your unique placements, theoretical knowledge and practical skills.
Placements are a significant part of the course and help you build the professional confidence and skills necessary to make a difference to other peoples’ lives. You can do your placement in three different environments, broadening your skills and experience as you progress. You may choose to do one of your placements overseas, for example, with our partners Helsinki Youth Service. Each youth and community work student is unique, and therefore brings their own interests and skill sets to the profession. The Youth and Community Work (Hons) programme of the Plymouth Marjon University is all about fostering students’ individual passions within the field.
