Study Community Development and Youth at the University of Bolton, No.1 in the North West for the past three years in Student Satisfaction in the Complete University Guide and No.2 in Teaching Quality in the Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020.
Results are finally in, and everyone is thinking about where they are going to university, or maybe asking if university is right for them. And you know what? It’s the perfect time. A lot of people may be talking about pandemics and lockdowns and recessions, but you have an amazing opportunity right now.
Because it’s all a bit crazy out there, there has never been a better time to study and enhance your knowledge and skill set. Work towards employment, which you’ll be ready for in a few years time, and skip all the drama and stress of a slow market that exists today. For postgraduates, it’s even a good time to think about going back to higher education and growing your skills and qualifications.
Why study Community Development and Youth?
The world isn’t a perfect place and it needs good people to focus on how things can be better, and to help the next generation have the best chance they can to succeed. Knowing how to engage with a community and get it working towards positive goals is one of the best ways to do this.
When we grow up in good communities, everything is better. Good communities create happy people that care for and support each other, and stop vulnerable people falling through the cracks in hard times.
That’s why degrees in Community Development and Youth Work can be so incredibly fulfilling. Nurturing kids towards constructive life goals and away from some of the troubles they all too easily fall into is a truly admirable commitment. It’s also a great way to work around youth development that isn’t just based in a classroom.
University of Bolton courses are professionally recognised by the Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) for Youth Work and the Endorsement and Quality Standards Board for Community Development (ESB).
