Covid 19 Notes:

CYM are waiting until July announcements before making a final decision about the way we will start teaching in the Autumn. We anticipate that delivery will take place face to face in Leicester with timetable adjustments to limit the number of students in the centre at one time. Additional learning activities will take place online.

Now in its 21st year of delivering validated training for people involved in work and ministry with children, young people and communities, CYM staff have published many of the core textbooks used by other colleges. We are also the only Christian college delivering the professional youth work qualification (the ‘JNC’) through postgraduate study.
