Course summary

The portfolio of pathways focusing on children and young people is designed to foster a purposeful and child-centred approach that makes a significant impact to children's services and student career satisfaction. Modules are delivered as standalone at both undergraduate and masters level and you can access a number of modules within the children's nursing portfolio. In keeping with a philosophy of inter-professional working, a number of modules are designed to meet the education needs of the inter-professional team. The course framework offers a flexible approach to the sequence and time-frame in which modules can be taken. This is negotiated on an individual basis with the pathway advisors.
