O melhor curso na melhor universidade para você

If you would like an opportunity to help create a better future for the next generation, this exciting course is designed to develop the skills, knowledge, sensitivity and understanding to join one of the many professions which deal with social, psychological and educational issues relating to children and young people. Our multi-disciplinary approach enables you to explore a diverse range of subjects, such as education, sociology, psychology, health and welfare, safeguarding, and policy and practice. This offers you a far deeper insight into the behaviours, attitudes and influences of children and young people in their communities and society at large. International perspectives on childhood and youth are threaded throughout the course, enabling you to develop a global understanding of how the education, health, wellbeing and the social mobility of children and young people are promoted by practitioners. In addition to the opportunity of international study visits and an international placement, we strive to ensure all modules feature internationally relevant content. For example, we have explored the health needs of a child or young person in a developing country and how political, social and cultural influences may impact these. Importantly, youâ??ll have the opportunity to put theory into practice, gaining relevant experience in a range of organisations at home or abroad, which may include charities and social enterprises, together with more traditional settings, like local councils and schools. Past students have undertaken placements working for schools (mainstream and specialist), childcare services, youth projects, social services, homelessness projects and disability support. Our range of international placement settings is currently growing each year, but to-date students have undertaken placements in the Republic of Ireland, the Netherlands, Spain, South Africa and the United States. As well as developing employability skills, this vital practical experience will increase your understanding of how a wide range of organisations work to develop the aspirations, prospects and quality of life of children and young people.
