The social care sector is growing with increasing employment opportunities for work with children, young people and families. This course will develop your expertise to work in a variety of settings with people of all ages, helping the people you support to achieve their full potential. Your studies start with a clear focus on local contexts before addressing national and global issues as you progress. You will develop a better understanding of how complex contemporary society is and how this impacts all of us. You also have the opportunity to transfer to the BA (Hons) Youth Work & Community Development (JNC) or BSc (Hons) Social Care, Justice & Recovery course on completion of your first year, without the need to repeat modules.

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.
