This course examines the way society is structured – and how this affects children, families and their communities.
Exploring issues such as digital communities and education, crime, human rights, abuse, poverty and loss, you’ll gain the key competencies required by the sector to enhance outcomes for children and families.
You’ll be given opportunities to train in safeguarding and Portage. You could study for an accredited Forest School certification too. This prepares you to work outside with children, taking into account a range of extra needs, and gives you a valuable extra qualification.
Work-based learning opportunities give you the chance to further enhance your skills. With links to over 600 education institutions across the UK, we offer a range of professional practice placements. You could broaden your experience spending a semester studying abroad too, at one our English-speaking partner universities in countries renowned for high-quality childcare, such as Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.
