Overview ​Do you want to make a difference in the lives of children and their families? If you're serious about a career within the child and family welfare sector, then this is the course for you.

Children and their families are high on the political and social agenda. Almost every week issues are raised by politicians and the media about how best to support children and families, and the point at which a formal or legal intervention becomes appropriate. Within the programme, you will also have the opportunity to attend external visits to family support settings to liaise with practitioners and see how services work 'on the ground'.

Additional information

Course Information You'll explore aspects of child development and how society understands the concept of family. Additionally, you'll have the chance to study aspects of childhood and the law relating to children and their families. In years one and two, you'll undertake professional work placements. These give you an opportunity to work in a variety of child and family settings, helping you to make the link between theory and practice, and to explore your career options early in your degree. The course considers controversial and topical issues, engaging students in debates around incidents reported in the media.  There is consideration too of scenarios that professionals face in supporting children and families.  In this way, students learn to make judgements, weigh up risks and take account of different views.  Not only does this make for enjoyable study, it prepares students for a confident and successful start to their professional life.​  Read our full course terms and conditions. More course information is available from the Programme Leader, Sue Elmer, at​​​.
