Fees for this programme are paid through a Scottish Government grant award (subject to continued funding) to the Centre for Looked After Children (CELCIS). No charges apply to students employed in residential child care settings in Scotland.
|Level||SCQF Level 11|
Undergraduate Honours Degree (Second Class) or equivalent qualifications and experience. Applicants with HNC/SVQ3/SVQ4 qualifications will be asked to provide a supporting written assignment. Students with professional or academic qualifications other than social work will be considered.
Assessment is made up of group or individual presentations and essays, both of which apply research, theory and social policy to your practice and the practices in your place of work.
In one module, assessment will involve your reflections on a video you’ve made of your communication in practice. You need sufficient access to practice in residential child care settings through which you’ll evidence practice requirements. However, these requirements are broad enough to allow those in external management, training or other relevant positions to meet the requirements of the assessments.
Modules: Critical perspectives on residential child care; understanding and assessing in children's life-spaces; ethical leadership and management in residential child care; skilled and reflective use of self in residential child care; intervening effectively in residential child care; methods: ethical and effective research in residential child care; professional enquiry in residential child care: dissertation.
