The programme seeks to explore the current debates around the changing world of youth and youth crime so that students are confident with the necessary skills to work with young people who are at risk of offending and support those already offending through the criminal justice system.
Each module is worth a specific number of credits: you take a combination of compulsory (and if available optional modules) enabling you to cover key subject knowledge while developing your own interests. For full time students a total of 120 credits will be studied in each academic year. In the majority of cases this will consist of 6 modules. Part time students will study 4 modules per year. Year 1 Modules: Youth Crime and Justice; Safeguarding Children and Young People; An Introduction to the Criminal Justice System; Multi-Agency Working; Lifespan Development; Research Methods. Year 2 Modules: Individual Differences; Supporting Social and Emotional Wellbeing; Equality, Rights, Diversity and Cultural Differences; Social Policy and Practice; Professional Practice.
