About Youth Work at Sheffield Hallam University

This course is a fast track route to becoming a fully qualified youth worker. You can study full-time or part-time to suit your needs. There are six modules, all relating to your work as a youth worker. Two are based in the workplace. The other modules cover understanding youth work, contemporary issues, management, and communication skills. You must complete at least 360 hours professional practice with 13-19 year olds. It is likely to take place in local voluntary, community and local authority youth services. Your first placement is normally in your current place of work. We base the course on the National Youth Agency’shttp://www.nya.org.uk/ requirements for youth workers and the National Occupational Standards in Youth Work (Lifelong Learning UKhttp://www.lifelonglearninguk.org/). All our lecturers are experienced youth workers. Course leader Jean Harris-Evans is a senior practitioner in the field and co-author of Delivering Good Youth Work. We base the course at City Campus in the heart of Sheffield, just three minutes walk from the train station.
