This module will provide a critically informed evaluation of the role Christians have and can fulfil within the school community. The module will provide a platform for students to engage with the changing policy environment for schools and to identify appropriate opportunities for contextual ministry.
Students will explore the role of the church and religious institutions in contemporary schooling through case studies and examples of Christian ministry towards and within schools, including a visit to a school that is an example of excellence in practice

No, unfortunately not this year. CYM is changing its validation to Newman University for 2021, and our previous partner is not able to accept new registrations. It might be possible to formally submit your assignment in future years and get credit then, as a stand alone module, or as part of a CYM BA or MA course, but we are not able to guarantee that.
A successful assignment will serve as an equivalent qualification to enter our BA or MA course next year, subject to other application procedures, and other colleges might accept this, but you will need to check with them.
Level 4 is the equivalent of 1st year of a BA course.
Level 7 is the equivalent of an MA module.
