Core studies

All our level 2 and 3 core courses (levels 4-6 in Scotland) lead to professional qualification – many in youth work and community learning and development. We also map a number of courses against the new social pedagogy standards. We are currently developing a new, qualifying, housing course.

We also offer a nationally-recognized Access to Higher Education course.
