Course summary

This distinctive Master’s degree is ideal if you work, or aspire to work, in the children and young people’s sector and/or in mental health. Challenging current thinking and reflecting on how to deliver best practice will provide you with the skills and confidence to become a highly effective leader and change agent in child and adolescent mental health and wellbeing. The course offers a strong focus on the role of early intervention as a preventative measure, along with protecting and promoting lifelong mental health and wellbeing through the critical exploration of evidence-based literature and research. The programme is underpinned by key contemporary Government policy, guidelines and practice. It will equip you with research skills relevant to applied research in a range of contemporary clinical and social care practice contexts.

The programme begins by introducing the concepts of leadership and change management, while also examining the individual differences in mental health across the child and adolescent age span and exploring the value and efficacy of early interventions. The course will be delivered through a combination of lectures, student-led seminars, tutorials and practical activities. Typical assessments will involve the writing of essays and reports. You will also be assessed through individual presentations. The research-active programme team has direct experience of working with children, young people, families and communities, including experience of working in the mental health sector and in child and adolescent mental health services. On successful completion of this programme, potential employment routes include pastoral support workers, special educational needs coordinators, children’s centre workers, youth workers, social care workers, teaching assistants, learning mentors, family support officers or parent liaison roles. Alternatively, you may wish to pursue research-based career opportunities.
