Children and Young People

Students enjoy lively debates through sharing their experiences with their fellow students who will themselves be drawn from a wide range of disciplines relating to children and young people. Inter-professional practice is central to the whole course and students will learn to build on their practice with children and young people to support the whole multi-disciplinary team that may be working with an individual or group, both within their workplace or in a wider social care context.

Entry requirements

1st degree or equivalent as well as experience working in an environment with children or young people. A professional qualification is not necessary but you must be able to demonstrate continuing involvement with children and young people and experience within the last 2 years of working with children and young people. If English is not the 1st language students should be able to demonstrate a certificated level of proficiency of at least IELTS 6.5 ( Academic level) or equivalent English Language qualification, as recognised by Anglia Ruskin University.

Core modules: safeguarding children and young people; significant events in childhood; research studies; major project. Optional modules: Advanced communication; collaborative practice for integrated care; global leadership.
