Course summary

Our MA Professional Practice with Children and Young People course offers an ideal development opportunity for graduates and current practitioners.

This course will develop your ability to become a more critical and innovative practitioner. You’ll gain specialist knowledge in children’s rights and participation, safeguarding, and a broad range of practical, legal and theoretical approaches.

Over the last three decades, there have been major developments in services for children, young people, their families and carers. This has led to new approaches to working and different expectations about the knowledge, skills and values needed by people to work effectively across the full range of children’s services. Integrated and multi-agency working, listening to children and young people’s voices, respecting diversity, and facilitating inclusive practice are just some of the skills and values which underpin the development of a professional and skilled children and young people’s workforce.

This course is timely in responding to government demands to raise the status and accreditation of those with responsibilities for the education and care of young children. It is also helping to ensure that best practice is informed by research, local expertise and international contexts.

Why study with us

  • You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of current research, policies and contemporary debates surrounding practice in children and young people’s services.
  • You’ll get the opportunity to critically reflect on your own practice and bring about positive change in the delivery of services to children and young people.
  • The staff who deliver this course are recognised practitioners and academics in their fields. The team includes staff who regularly publish for leading journals in social work, health, education, children’s rights and sociology.
