This Studentship is a work-based training programme that enables individuals to benefit from ongoing training in a professional youth work setting, learn professional skills and gain a nationally recognised professional youth work qualification (BSc (Hons) Community Youth Work) while receiving a financial bursary to support them with maintenance and subsistence costs.
You will gain lots of valuable knowledge, practical skills and work experience as well as an nationally recognised university degree – just the combination that can help increase your future employability, boost your CV, help you progress into management roles and open new career opportunities for you. This programme will provide you with an immediate 3-year fixed-term placement working and training in St John Vianney Youth Centre as well as attending Ulster University on a weekly basis. Professional youth work degrees are highly valued by a wide range of employers. Achieving the degree in youth work will therefore significantly increase your chances of getting a job in a multitude of settings.
You will be provided with financial assistance (£15,000 per year) in the form of a bursary towards your maintenance and subsistence costs while you gain valuable professional youth work experience as well as gaining a recognised professional qualification.
