You’ll find undergraduate courses at NTC can open many doors – to ministry, community work or continued education. In fact, recent graduates have gone on to find roles in some fascinating settings, in Britain and abroad. To give you greater flexibility, all of our courses are modular. This means the course can form a qualification in its own right or it can be used to build credits in your ‘learning account’. These credits can then go towards an award from the college. We offer three distinct BA degree pathways: Theology, Practical Theology, Youth and Community. Each course has a combination of ‘required units’ and ‘elective units’. The ‘required units’ make sure that the core elements are in place. The ‘elective units’ allow you to choose areas of particular interest from the full range of units on offer. Although all ‘required units’ are available each year, many ‘elective units’ are available on a two-year cycle. The BA (Hons) in Theology (Youth and Community) is a fantastic placement-based pathway with part-time and full-time routes available. One of the unique features of this pathway is that students can study in Glasgow (at SSCM) or Manchester. This pathway holds joint professional validation: JNC Recognised through NYA Validation and CLD Scotland.

The Youth and Community degree-level vocational and professional pathway will equip Christian youth and community workers for a range of ministries. Carefully tailored to deliver a blend of specialist knowledge and skills training, along with extensive opportunities for putting them into practice, students will reflect upon the relationship between theology and youth and community work practice. There is a strong focus on practice development, placements and employability and it is useful for those who are wanting to serve in churches or Christian organisations, or who want to understand how the Christian faith relates to the field of youth and community work. The course includes small group work, study skills support and individual tutorials, and teaching staff are actively engaged in youth and community practice, research and development nationally and internationally. There is a positive commitment to equality and the development of good practice in diverse contexts and a range of electives from all disciplines to choose after the first year. Exit routes at Certificate and Diploma level are possible (although do not carry CLD/JNC professional validation). Students will receive a minimum of 360 credits while on this course.

Study is combined with a youth/community/ministry placement throughout the course and an Alternative Placement in a different context at the end of the first year. A range of placement settings are available from community projects to churches, schools to youth centres, detached youth work and arts-based projects.

Core modules include: Group Work, Informal Education, Strategy and Management, Youth and Community Work and Ministry Essentials, Empowering People, Power and Opportunity, Preparing for Professional Practice, Biblical Studies and a range of Old and New Testament subjects, Christian Doctrine, Theology and Church History. The degree pathway holds joint professional validation: JNC Recognised through NYA Validation and CLD Scotland.
