The University works in partnership with Unitas to validate a range of Foundation and Honours degrees in Youth Justice, Crime, Criminology and Criminal Justice.  These higher education qualifications are delivered via distance learning to those working, or aspiring to work, in the youth justice and criminal justice systems. 


Unitas has worked with over 4000 students, and approximately two-thirds of local authorities and youth offending teams.  Professionalising the youth justice workforce is critical to improving the outcomes for young people. The courses listed are offered as distance learning programmes which enable staff to work and learn to achieve their qualifications.
