Supporting the personal development of others is a core responsibility of being a community worker. This is especially the case if you are working with teenagers and young adults in disadvantaged communities. But personal development is just important for you as the service provider. And it’s vital to dedicate time to your own personal growth if you want to improve your skills and help communities flourish.
The University of Bolton’s MA Community Development and Youth Studies course is designed to take your career to the next level, giving you the tools to fast-track your career into management.
Nurturing future leaders in youth work
If you’re an ambitious graduate or a community and youth worker looking to gain access to senior job roles, a personal development programme can help you succeed. We create a platform for the community support workers and leaders of the future, with specialist modules that deepen your understanding of core areas. By developing your critical reflection, analysis and evaluation skills, and teaching key principles in academic research and investigation, we can help you improve your practice.
Personal development in a supportive environment
Postgraduate training at the University of Bolton fosters student talent, providing a supportive and friendly learning environment for students to reach their potential. Our course offers one-to-one mentorship to ensure you get the support, guidance and attention you need to excel. And with a dedicated Employability Team to help you achieve your career ambitions once you graduate, you’ll be able to build a long-term career plan with us.
An award-winning university
Not only do we have an award-winning Student Services Team to support you during your studies, but we’re also in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020), as well as in the Top 50 UK Universities in The Guardian University League Tables 2021.
Furthermore, students have voted us No.1 in the North West for Student Satisfaction for three years running (Complete University Guide in 2021, 2020 and 2019) because we put our students, and their needs first.
