Our multi-professional teaching team will help you to explore the opportunities for working with children and young people, and find the right option for you. Previous students have achieved positions in education welfare as attendance officers, as family support workers, as project managers for charities and as voluntary providers of children’s services. Many of our students go on to postgraduate study in the field of education, social work, psychology and counselling. Foundation Year The foundation year is designed to give you the opportunity to develop your academic and interpersonal skills while developing your subject knowledge further to support you to success on your academic path. By studying a foundation year, your first year will be spent learning a wide range of broad subject areas which then open up opportunities for you to specialise further in your next year – which would be the first year of a full degree programme.
