BA (Hons) Child and Youth Studies

What have you enjoyed about the course? ‌

Ryan JordanThe course has been extremely helpful and all the staff are friendly who dedicate themselves to helping every student achieve their goals and aspirations. The course is
predominantly placement based so if you’re quite a practical person then the course is ideal.

Lots of opportunities to succeed often become available and I even got a job within teaching through the course which was great. If you’re looking into a teaching career whether it is
primary, secondary or further education, I would recommend
this course very highly.

What are you doing now?

I'm now looking to do a PGCE course here at Derby to further my skills and experience. I work 3 days a week as a supervisor/ supply teacher, teaching P.E at a school. This came through my placement in my first year as the head of P.E at the school spotted me/ my ability and I now run P.E classes.
