More about this course

New for 2018, this exciting course aims to educate a new generation of project pioneers to improve the quality of life for those affected by disability, ill-health, poverty, trauma or social exclusion.

The main focus will be to engage and sustain communities to improve collective wellbeing while developing skills in leadership, social welfare, project management and solving practical problems through creative, therapeutic and innovative means.

 You can expect to study the following key topics.

  • Systematic approaches to the assessment of needs, rights and risks, communication and conflict resolution skills.
  • A reflexive and experiential approach to developing socio-emotional intelligence.
  • Personal-professional ethics, how they are expressed in our life and work, and how they relate to laws, politics and cultures.
  • Theories and practices of wellbeing.
  • Enterprising welfare – to equip students with skills in applying for funding, designing websites and managing projects.
