New pathway for youth worker accreditation

October 13, 2020

Working with young people is an immensely rewarding career where you mentor and lead young people to reach their full potential.

Following a new course pathway focused on youth work and development in the Bachelor of Youth and Community Leadership (BYCL) degree will lead to professional membership with Korowai Tupu, the professional association for youth work in Aotearoa New Zealand.

This pathway has been designed in consultation with Korowai Tupu, Ara Taiohi (the national peak body for youth development in Aotearoa), the Canterbury Youth Workers Collective (CYWC), and other professional organisations.

UC’s Bachelor of Youth and Community Leadership is the only university degree-level programme for aspiring youth workers in Aotearoa.
