Leeds Beckett University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Created in consultation with housing, mental health, addiction and other welfare agencies, this course will equip you with the skills and knowledge to help and safeguard vulnerable people, families and communities.
Mixing practice with academic study to ensure you are better able to understand and guide those in crisis, you will hone your communication and therapeutic skills through simulated counselling sessions, and you will explore and analyse child development, drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence and mental health issues.
You will learn about the different policies and frameworks behind community development, criminal justice, health services, social work and education, building upon the core principles of social and community work.
You also have the opportunity to transfer to the BA (Hons) Youth Work & Community Development (JNC) or BA (Hons) Working with Children, Young People & Families course on completion of your first year, without the need to repeat modules.
Our students can hone their legal expertise in purpose-built facilities, including our very own courtroom.
Interpersonal Skills Suite
We have plenty of private rooms to allow you to try out your counselling skills. They come equipped with recording facilities so you’re able to reflect on and improve your practice.
