University of Central Lancashire: Safeguarding Children
|Institution||University of Central Lancashire View institution profile|
|Department||School of Social Work, Care and Community|
Safeguarding children is a high profile area of work, where decision making carries a high order of risk for children, their families and those engaged with them. There is a pressing demand for professionals and others across a wide range of disciplines and sectors to develop an in-depth knowledge of child protection work and to demonstrate effective, evidence based skills. The Postgraduate Certificate in Safeguarding Children was developed to offer opportunities for continuing personal and professional development through the development of in-depth knowledge to support practitioners and others whose work or research interests lay within the wide range of services for children, young people, their parents or carers. The multi-disciplinary backgrounds and experiences of candidates are an important value added element of the course, mirroring as it does the multi-agency working which underpins all contemporary children’s services and is required by legislation and guidance.

The guiding principle governing recruitment to this programme will be our perception of applicants' ability to benefit from the course. There is a standard benchmark requirement of a first degree in a relevant subject or area, but non-standard entrants are encouraged. In appropriate cases, accredited prior learning and/or professional experience may be substituted for a first degree in line with current academic regulations. Typically this will be where applicants hold a professional qualification that can be accredited as relevant prior learning (APL).
