The Social Work with Children, Young People and Families programme is designed to meet the continuing professional development needs of social work staff working across the childcare sector. The programme presents opportunities to study a range of areas relevant to practice with children, young people and families, with three modules focusing broadly on: • Advanced Knowledge, Theory and Methods • Promoting and Safeguarding the Welfare of Children and Families • Enhancing Outcomes for Children in State Care Teaching is informed by current research and evidence, and students are encouraged to apply the learning to their particular professional contexts. Working with practitioners from a range of settings affords a creative and challenging opportunity for learning and the sharing of ideas and approaches for best practice with children, young people and families. Students can access modules individually and accumulate academic credit points towards an award, affording the flexibility to work within your own time schedules. While modules can be taken on a 'stand alone' basis, the full PG Diploma programme aims to maintain educational coherence whilst offering learning opportunities across a wide range of topics and issues. Successful completion of the modules comprising the PG Diploma allows the student to apply for the Dissertation module, to obtain the MSc in Social Work with Children, Young People and Families. Please note that this course is not eligible for a Tier 4 visa. Closing date for applications: Friday 29th July 2022 at 4pm. Late applications may be considered. The Master's programme meets all nine of the professional requirements in the 'specialist' category, giving the specialist award and three requirements at the 'Leadership' category. This programme is only open to qualified social workers.
