Course Summary

In this course you will 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.

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 will 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.
