To consider the global nature of youth work and the dynamics which may affect the delivery of services for young people and their communities.
Students will be required to analyse an aspect of the global nature of youth work. Students will examine how the demography of a geographical area has changed over a period of time and how demographic changes have impacted on service delivery. Students will examine the reasons for these demographic changes and the experience of individuals in this process. Students will be encouraged to analyse differing socio-economic and culture differences / similarities within a geographical area and consider these in relation to youth & community work and global issues.
This will be a combination of formally taught sessions, student centred practical exercises as well as debates. Each student will be expected to lead a time bound seminar on their chosen area. Guest speakers will also be invited to give seminars on their work with young people from a diversity of communities.
