Working for Children and Young people
The course may interest graduates wishing to study a contemporary, relevant and challenging postgraduate programme who have studied related subjects, such as education, social care, health, youth offending, sports or community development or the voluntary sector. You will recognise the increasing responsibility for those working in socio-educational, voluntary and third sector public services to collaborate in an increasing variety of inter and multiagency contexts. You will explore the benefits of exchanges of professional information and coordination of service responses to children, young people, families and communities. You will also study the ethical dimensions required to work effectively in inter-professional teams of service providers, whilst also learning about safeguarding and European models of practice with children and young people.
Applicants should hold an undergraduate degree. Exceptions may be made if you have considerable work experience with children or young people and this will be assessed via a written submission or portfolio of evidence and references as well as by interview.
Core modules: Building effective partnerships; ethics, reflection and safeguarding; supervision and support skills (including the All Wales Supervision Qualification for practice supervisors); social pedagogy; managing and leading interdisciplinary teams; research methods and project management; dissertation (20,000 words) or internship and critical report (15,000 words).
