Seal of Approval

CLD Standards Council Approvals Committee are happy to announce that they have approved Fife College for the HNC Working with Communities.

Fife College have received full approval from the CLD Standards Council for their part time hybrid HNC Working with Communities. For any practitioners interested but are out with the local Fife area, classes will be available to join online via Microsoft Teams. The course will be 1 day per week in college/online (Thursday 9am-4pm) and 1 day per week on placement (minimum of 6 hours per week). This does not need to be one full day and can be made up of a variety of working/voluntary hours throughout the week and weekends either during the day or in the evenings. It is suggested that those joining from out with the local area would be in suitable employment, or able to source their own placement opportunity (Support can be provided, if necessary).

If you earn under £25k, part time funding is available through the SAAS Part Time Fee Grant. This does leave £206 payable by the student, which can be paid in instalments using Fife College’s payment plan.

To apply for the course, please do so on the Fife College website.

We are delighted that the UHI (University of the Highlands and Islands) BA (Hons) Child and Youth Studies with Community Learning and Development has received accreditation with the CLD Standards Council Scotland. This builds on the well-established BA (Hons) Child and Youth Studies degree and provides an opportunity for individuals in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland to gain a professionally recognised qualification in the sector. UHI are looking forward to welcoming the first cohort in September 2024!
