Working with Children, Young People and Families

Course summary

Working with children, young people and families involves examining the way society is structured and how this impacts on the lives of children, families and their communities. Looking to make a difference to families you care about, in communities you live and work in? The global pandemic has highlighted the vital role played by key workers supporting families and children and shaped new ways of working. Now is the time to acquire the skills and competencies to make a difference. By studying real life problems, such as digital communities and education, crime, human rights, abuse, poverty and loss, students gain competencies required by the sector to enhance the outcomes for future families. Included is the opportunity to study toward Forest School certification, Safeguarding, Portage training, along with professional placements and volunteering opportunities. This programme is taught by a team of experts in the fields of education, social care, health, inclusion and therapeutic approaches, giving you a real, practical knowledge that will be invaluable in your future career.
