dc.description.abstractGlobal youth work (GYW) may be considered as encompassing forms of education with young
 people which are variously referred to as development education, global citizenship, education
 for sustainable development, and humanitarian education amongst others. This article reports
 on primary research in relation to how GYW is conceptualised and addressed in those Higher
 Education Institutions (HEIs) that deliver youth and community work qualifications across the
 UK. The research reports specifically on perceived issues of pedagogy, and asks what skills,
 knowledge and resources are required to deliver an effective curriculum. The article further
 explores to what extent HEIs are meeting the needs of the field in regards to addressing a
 global dimension.
 The research was based on semi-structured interviews with 43 programme/module leaders in
 HEIs across Britain, 28 recent youth and community development (YCD) graduates and a focus
 group comprised of 11 representatives of leading international nongovernmental organisations,
 HEIs and statutory organisations involved in the delivery of GYW. The research concludes that
 the conceptualisation of and importance attached to global youth work varies greatly both
 between and within HEIs. The extent to which current YCD students are enabled to ‘think globally
 and act locally’may be subject to the vagaries of particular tutors’ interests. In addition, there
 is no definitive agreement as to whether lecturers need additional skills to deliver effective GYW
 training. There is agreement, however, that there is a need for the development of suitable GYW
 curricula and appropriate learning resources within HEIs delivering youth and community work
 courses.
