You will study four modules, the first two of which make up the Certificate of Higher Education in Youth Justice (Cert HE YJ). Two of the modules last 24 weeks and two last 30 weeks. The programme provides a detailed overview of how the youth justice system works and the principles on which it is based, covering key areas of criminal justice practice, including assessment, planning interventions and review, engaging and communicating with children and child and adolescent development.
Using our unique digital platform, you will learn through video case studies, extracts, reflective activities and multiple-choice quizzes. You will also be provided with two textbooks, Exploring Youth Justice and Effective Practice in Youth Justice, which have been written specifically for this course and fully complement the digital resources.
You will be able to study anywhere and at any time; either online or on the app, which you can use even without an internet connection. You will also have a dedicated Learning Coach who will support you on your learning journey and assess your work.
