MA - Master of Arts
Study the UK’s only postgraduate course in Family Support to acquire the practical and professional skills you need to manage and deliver effective family support.
You’ll learn from research-active academics with extensive experience as social care and family support practitioners. They’ll work with you to help you develop effective practice in a range of settings - from social care and health, to education.
About this course
The course is delivered by lecturers with diverse experiences of working in family support and children's services. Their approach to learning and teaching is underpinned by theoretical knowledge, the latest research and contemporary issues facing family support. They’re well-connected with local employers who provide specialist services in family support and early help and regularly consult with them to ensure the course content meets the needs of the sector.
We keep our class sizes small so we can give you the personal support you need to flourish – whether you’re already experienced in the area of family support, you want to change careers, or you’re a recent graduate. You’ll have the chance to complete work-based learning assessments, or we’ll work with you to arrange professional work placements as part of your course.
By the time you graduate, you’ll have had the chance to critically reflect on your practice, learn from evidence-informed practice, and contribute to the development of practice knowledge in family support.
