Statement from the CLD Standards Council – February 2024

As the professional body for adult, community and youth workers in Scotland, the Community Learning and Development Standards Council grants professional endorsement for relevant adult learning, youth and community work degree programmes. We can confirm that after extensive engagement with the QAA (Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education) and the University of Glasgow that the University of Glasgow is again fully compliant with the set standards for professional approval, in respect of the BA/BA Hons in Community Development for the class of 2023.
We can confirm that the University has ensured that all those who graduated did so in compliance with the Professional Approval Standards.

The CLD Standards Council further confirm that the University of Glasgow continues to hold professional approval for the BA/BA(HONS) in Community Development, as a suitable course of study for employment within the distinct profession of Community Learning and Development.

As part of our function as the approving body, We will continue to engage with all University partners to ensure that the Professional Standards for Community Learning and Development are upheld across Scotland.
