Course summary

The BA (Hons) Childhood, Welfare and Education (level 6 top-up) is an exciting opportunity to take your understanding and practice of Childhood Studies and Education to the next level.

The programme:

  • Is offered to you as a fully supported e-learning programme
  • Encourages independent study
  • Deepens academic knowledge and understanding
  • Can be studied over one or two years depending on your own work and family commitments.

The BA (Hons) Childhood, Welfare and Education (level 6 top-up) will be delivered online using Glyndŵr’s virtual learning environment – Moodle. This is an easy to use self-contained website which enables students to access the course materials, tutors and other students across their programme. We actively encourage communication and have a thriving community of students online who share their experiences of working with children in a variety of roles. We use a wide range of tools for keeping in touch including, online conferencing, chat rooms (forums), e-mails, messaging and telephone/Skype.

The programme is designed to offer flexibility to fit study around family and work commitments, however, students work within a course structure to encourage motivation and completion. The materials for each session are covered over a set period to enable students to develop their own study patterns i.e. daytime, evenings, weekends. Each session will engage students through a variety of tools from reading to video, podcasts, screencasts and exploring the web. Students will also be engaged in discussion around the session topics using a variety of chat forums.

All students are invited to attend three, one day Saturday study days throughout the year where they will be engaged in workshops (linked to module content) and have a chance to meet other students and members of staff. These study days are not compulsory and content covered during the day is recorded as a video and shared with students online.

At level 6 students are expected to make a transition to more independent learning and to manage assessments with more complexity and scope. Within the degree the main assessment types are:

  • Essay
  • Comparative Report
  • Literature Review
  • Research Project

High-quality feedback and feedforward is provided to students studying online to enhance their overall achievement. Students will be provided with written feedback and/or feedforward for each piece of work and have an opportunity to discuss this with their peers and tutors. Feedback is presented in a way that allows students to see how their academic work is progressing throughout the year.

This is a highly topical area of study as current policy and legislation is leading to demand for experts within the children’s workforce. The aim of this degree is to develop you further as a professional in your own chosen field. Many of our students undertaking the degree have moved up the career ladder both through promotion and further study into teaching, advisory and senior roles.
