Having knowledgeable and effective practitioners in a mental health and wellbeing role is crucial to enable some children and young people to achieve an enjoyable and fulfilling life. Whilst studying this foundation degree you will explore some of the key mental health and wellbeing issues that children and young people face. As a result you can make a significant difference by providing support and guidance to children and young people when it is needed.

You will study with likeminded people across a range of other related professional roles based in your own community. The use of weekly learning sessions, either face-to-face learning in local venues or online, will enable you to balance study, work and home demands. Local delivery in a study group with students across a small number of interrelated programmes will support you to be successful in your study.

As work based practice is a key part of this degree you have the potential to work during your study. This work based learning will provide you with a key opportunity to connect your academic and professional learning with the expectation that you have access to 10 hours per week across the study year. Due to the flexibility in assignment titles it will be possible when appropriate to negotiate a focus that meets the needs of you and your employer.

• A requirement of attendance at two weekend (Friday evening and Saturday daytime) sessions each year is structured to support you to engage with students on your degree from across the country.
• There is the opportunity to progress to a BSc top-up on completion.
• The degree can be used to support you on your route into teacher training.
