Youth work university courses

The University of Manchester is planning to suspend recruitment onto the Applied Community & Youth Work Studies (ACYWS) programme. According to a petition set up to save the course, Dean of the Faculty of Humanities, Keith Brown, claimed that there is “no point to the course” and said “the University is aiming to be one of the best University’s in the world, meaning that they only want to recruit students with excellent A levels and intend to focus on courses linked to world class research.” The petition added, “Over the past 25 years, students on the course have worked with literally hundreds of community-based organisations, and supported young people experiencing exclusion and disadvantage throughout Greater Manchester.” A University of Manchester spokesman told CYP Now that the course has faced difficulties in maintaining its recruitment levels.
