The Working with Children and Families course provides the knowledge and skills you need to work with children and families in a range of settings.
You'll examine issues that influence the lives and well-being of children and families in today's society. Your studies will cover a range of services, systems, policies and work practices that support children and families. To reflect the reality of the workplace, you'll explore multi- agency working and understand the roles of di?erent professionals in early years, education and social work.
A key feature of the Working with Children and Families course is attending a work placement. Alongside your academic studies, this allows you to see how theory, policy and practice relate to each other, and will prepare you for a range of career opportunities.
Career paths usually include work in schools, children's charities, integrated children's centres, and social care settings, as well as postgraduate study in education or social work.
