Following a joint approval visit with CLD Standards Council and NYA (National Youth Agency) England we are pleased to announce that the Nazarene Theological College have obtained a 5 year approval for the BA(Hons) Theology (Youth and Community).
This programme is delivered in Scotland by Scottish School of Christian Mission.
The Panel were very impressed by the commitment of the delivery team to the programme and were pleased to note that there was very clear mapping to the National Occupational Standards and also that CLD values and principles came across very clearly in the programme content. This programme will add enhanced value to the CLD agenda and the range of faith based qualifications in England.
This visit was completed using JETS (Joint Education Training Standards) Approval Guidelines. JETS is a co-operative Scheme of the UK & Ireland Joint ETS administered by its members: ETS (England), ETS (Wales), the North-South ETS (All Ireland), and CLD Standards Council for Scotland. The primary responsibilities of JETS is to validate and endorse courses leading to professional qualification in youth work (and for CLD in Scotland) in their respective jurisdictions.
Programmes validated/endorsed in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England for Youth and Community Work have mutual recognition arrangements in place so if a programme is recognised as professional status in one UK nation it will be recognised in all through processes agreed by the Joint Education Training Standards Committee (JETS).
