Course summary

Overview For children and young people, life can be full of complexity, characterised by unceasing change and development. Integrated working brings the various professionals, practitioners and volunteers that make up the children's workforce together, placing the child or young person at the centre of their network of support. This degree will prepare students for a career working with children, young people and families across a range of education, health and social care environments. The course relates to the study of children from birth to 19 years. At Worcester, we take a multi-disciplinary approach, which allows you to develop your expertise from a range of different perspectives, whilst fostering respect for children, their families, and other professional roles - essential components for an integrated children's service.
