It draws from a variety of disciplines and approaches including child and youth care, social pedagogy, sociology, psychology, health, education, social work and social policy.

The programme considers and examines theoretical and policy contexts, child development in the life space, management and leadership, intervention methods, critical reflection, relational practice and research methods.
