BA Hons Social Pedagogy

BA (Hons) Social pedagogy. This programme, which is offered by and based at YMCA George Williams College and the Medway Campus in Chatham, builds on a rich tradition of UK practice in informal and social education, group work and community learning and development – and combines this with exploring Scandinavian and continental models of social pedagogy. Often more holistic and group-oriented than dominant forms of social work and schooling, social pedagogy has its roots in progressive education – but has often found a home in social work agencies. It is often used to describe the activities of workers concerned with group living, community development, play, and young people. It is available as a taught programme and by distance learning. The programme leads to Canterbury Christ Church Award as well as full dual professional qualification in youth work (validated by the National Youth Agency) and community learning and development (validated by Standards Council for Community Learning and Development for Scotland). How to apply for September/October 2015.
