Find out more about the TEF.

This new degree intends to support the workforce in sectors caring for children, young people and vulnerable adults by providing specialised professional knowledge for practitioners. The provision of effective and knowledgeable practitioners in a health and wellbeing role is crucial; you can make a significant difference by providing support and guidance to people when they need it, whatever their age. This newdegree will provide you with the opportunity to deepen your knowledge of key concepts and theories that will underpin your own development as a practitioner. 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) study sessions each year is structured to support you to engage with students on your degree from across the country.
• Work based learning provides you with a key opportunity to connect your academic and professional learning with the expectation that students have access to 10 hours per week across the study year.
• You will share your study with students across a small number of interrelated programmes.
• There is the opportunity to progress to a BSc top-up on completion.
