Naming the Taken-for-Granted: What British youth and community work students learn from international mobility.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The majority of the United Kingdom (UK)'s youth and community work(YCW) students complete their studies within the UK. A minority undertake fieldwork placements outside the UK either using their own contacts or through programmes such as Erasmus (the European Union's mobility scheme for university students). This article focuses on the nature of learning for these students, who typically live and work in an unfamiliar context for between three and six months. During this time they are dislocated from the familiar in personal and professional terms and are immersed in different cultural and social contexts. This research focuses on the nature of learning for YCW students who undertake professional practice placements outside the UK.
