Course summary

The development of children and young people are at the forefront of policy and debate in today's society. The focus of this course is to provide you with the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge and understanding of child development and other factors that shape children's lives from birth. A key difference between this and other programmes of study is that we help you to develop your understanding from the perspective of children. So if you're looking to progress into teaching, working in early years, social care, child and youth policy work and other occupations relating to children, young people and families, then this course could be for you. You'll explore the nature of childhood in a contemporary society, referencing relevant social theory and research as well as drawing on current policy and practices in the field, including your own experiences. Key topics include the study of childhood through the perspectives of psychology, sociology, philosophy and educational theories and development, Inclusivity, Safeguarding. We'll also help you to develop as a critical thinker; able to understand and challenge current approaches and policy.This is a two year course, combined with a work placement in an early years environment. The course is delivered over one day and an evening; it is comprised of a variety of teaching methods which work alongside the student’s placement.
