Summary

The Social Work with Children, Young People and Families programmes are designed to meet the continuing professional development needs of those staff working in the care professions (social work, psychology, education, nursing, teaching, medicine, etc).

With the current emphasis on a flexible, accessible, streamlined and seamless post-qualifying continuum, and one that aims to offer a more continuous range of opportunities for progression, we offer a range of modules and courses within an overall PG Certificate/PG Diploma/MSc programme.

The programmes present opportunities to study a range of areas including direct practice in child care, management and leadership within organisations and adult mental health at postgraduate level.

In addition, they aim to maintain educational coherence whilst covering diversity and choice. You can access a range of modules that accumulate into an award, affording the flexibility to work within their own time schedules.

The modules that make up the Social Work with Children, Young People and Families programme are designed to meet the continuing professional development needs of social work staff working across the Child Care sector.

The programme presents opportunities to study a range of areas relevant to practice with children, young people and families, with three modules focusing broadly on
• Advanced Knowledge, Theory and Methods
• Promoting and Safeguarding the Welfare of Children and Families
• Enhancing Outcomes for Children in State Care

Teaching is informed by current research and evidence, and students are encouraged to apply the learning to their particular professional contexts. Working with practitioners from a range of settings affords a creative and challenging opportunity for learning and the sharing of ideas and approaches for best practice with children, young people and families.

Students can access modules individually and accumulate academic credit points towards an award, affording the flexibility to work within your own time schedules.

While modules can be taken on a ‘stand alone’ basis, the full PG Diploma programme aims to maintain educational coherence whilst offering learning opportunities across a wide range of topics and issues. Successful completion of the modules comprising the PG Diploma allows the student to apply for the Dissertation module, to obtain the MSc in Social Work with Children, Young People and Families.

Please note that this course is not eligible for a Tier 4 visa.
