Theology for Children and Youth
For the past decade, Oak Hill has been treating youth work as an area of ministry which deserves the best training we can offer. Our foundation degree, with a specialisation in Theology for Children and Youth, continues what we’ve been doing, but makes some significant improvements.
If you have a desire serve among children and young people in God's church, we think you need a theological degree, complete with practical and professional training. We are confident you'll thrive in the training we provide.
Information for 2018/19 and 2019/20 entry
From September 2018, Mel Lacy, Director of the Theology & Praxis for Children’s & Youth Ministry (TCY) stream, will become the Executive Director of a new charity called Growing Young Disciples. She will continue to be Director of the TCY stream within the College’s undergraduate programmes and fully involved in teaching the stream for the years 2018/19 and 2019/20.
All of our teaching programmes are subject to a planned cycle of review and revalidation by our partner Middlesex University. In the case of our undergraduate provision, including the TCY stream, the preparation for this will begin in the coming months for implementation in the academic year 2020/21.
Oak Hill is totally committed to continue to teach out the current TCY stream and Mel will play a key part in that. Current TCY students, both full and part time, will continue to be taught with the same commitment and excellence they expect from Oak Hill.
However, as the review and revalidation may involve significant developments and changes to our undergraduate programmes, we will for 2018/19 be accepting full time applications for the TCY stream for CertHE (one year), FdA (two years) and BAHons (three years) and part time applications for only the CertHE (two years). There will then be no TCY stream intake for either full or part time study in 2019/20.
