Foundation Degree in Working with Young People

If you work with young people as a volunteer or in a paid role, the Foundation Degree in Working with Young People will enhance your skills and practice – whether you’re studying for personal development, as a step towards a professional qualification, or to find out if a career in youth work is for you. Students on this foundation degree course work in a variety of statutory or voluntary settings – for example, in youth clubs, schools, Scouts and Guides, or in faith-based organisations. You’ll gain the understanding needed to work successfully with young people (aged 13-19 years) in these settings, and develop your knowledge of the ethics, values and purposes that underpin effective practice.

Unlikely Leaders

What do you imagine when you think of a leader? Is the customary vision of the powerful politician or business leader still entirely relevant today? In these recent times of massive political and economic upheaval, it appears that society’s faith in its traditional leaders is at its lowest ebb: for many they're no longer a source of support or trust, and as a result people have started looking elsewhere. In this series of short films, Open University experts nominate their own ‘Unlikely Leader,’ from Russell Brand to Olympic boxer Nicola Adams, challenging our assumptions about the meaning of Leadership and encouraging us to think differently about just what makes a ‘great leader’. As conventional leaders continue to let us down, the ‘Unlikely Leaders’ might just be our salvation.

The pensions timebomb

Over the last three decades major events, scandals and regulations have shocked the pension system. Have the public lost faith in occupational and private pensions? Should the state pension be enough to see us through our old age? And with the non-working to working ratio continuing to rapidly increase, who will pay? We hear from those that were directly affected by the scandals of the 90's and the collapse in private pensions since - and from the experts whose job it is to help us make provisions for old age. This material forms part of The Open University course DB234 Personal investment in an uncertain world
