Course Summary

Overview

The Social Work with Children, Young People and Families programmes are designed to meet the continuing professional development needs of those staff working in the care professions (social work, psychology, education, nursing, teaching, medicine, etc).

With the current emphasis on a flexible, accessible, streamlined and seamless post-qualifying continuum, and one that aims to offer a more continuous range of opportunities for progression, we offer a range of modules and courses within an overall PG Certificate/PG Diploma/MSc programme.

The programmes present opportunities to study a range of areas including direct practice in child care, management and leadership within organisations and adult mental health at postgraduate level.

In addition, they aim to maintain educational coherence whilst covering diversity and choice. You can access a range of modules that accumulate into an award, affording the flexibility to work within their own time schedules.
