FdA Youth Justice and Youth Studies Level 5
The Youth Justice and Youth Studies programme seeks to explore the current debates around the changing world of youth and youth crime so that students are confident with the necessary skills to work with young people who are at risk of offending and support those already offending through the criminal justice system.
- We will consider a variety of qualifications and relevant experience and each application is assessed on its own merit.
Each module is worth a specified number of credits: you take a combination of compulsory (and if available optional modules) enabling you to cover key subject knowledge while developing your own interests.

"I will really miss my college days and from the beginning the tutor, Al, has been so supportive. From someone who has not completed anything academic in over 20 years, this course was a step in the right direction for me. I have learnt so much from the group of people, different organisations, but mostly from Al who has a wealth of HR knowledge. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Al and she will always go out of her way to support and guide you in the right direction".
