This award includes a professional qualification validated by the National Youth Agency and recognised by the Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) of Youth Leaders and Community Work. This is conferred at Postgraduate Diploma level (120 credits at level 7) on successful completion of the relevant taught units and placements (but we encourage students to register for full MA where possible). The PgDip/MA is aimed at graduates with relevant experience, particularly in working with young people/communities, and with a commitment to community/social education, youth development, and the possibilities of social justice and change. The course  is designed to prepare the student for  management and leadership roles  in both voluntary and statutory organisations.

The award teaching, learning and assessment strategies will reflect the values, ethical principles and codes of practice that underpin the profession. They are based on a framework of quality drawn from national guidelines (QAA Youth and Community Work Benchmark Statement) and institutional strategies (The Manchester Metropolitan University's  Mission Statement and Learning and Teaching  Strategy), as well as  National Standards set by the NYA.

This award is part of the Manchester Met Faculty of Education postgraduate Professional Development Programme.
