Course summary

This course will equip you with an up to date and in-depth knowledge of the legal, ethical, and practical issues which underpin practice in both adult, young people and child safeguarding. You will critically analyse the wider safeguarding agendas with an emphasis on applying theory and learning in order to enhance professional practice. You can learn flexibly from one module right up to a complete Master's. In practice this means you can either study singular modules or complete a range of modules, to gain either a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or a full MSc in Safeguarding.

This course is designed for multi-disciplinary professionals from social care, health, police, education, voluntary and charitable organisations, private hospitals and other organisations with an interest in safeguarding children, young people and adults.

Safeguarding is a rapidly changing and multi-complex area of practice which attracts continual media interest and attention. It is underpinned by a plethora of legislation and guidance which can often leave professionals both bewildered and overwhelmed and is one of the main focus areas for the inspection of services and organisations. This programme aims to equip you with an up to date, in-depth knowledge, understanding and critical awareness of the legal, ethical, and practice issues which underpin practice in both adult, young people and child safeguarding, while critically analysing the wider safeguarding agendas with an emphasis on applying theory and learning in order to enhance professional practice.

The course aims to combine learning in adult, young people and child safeguarding in each of the modules in order for practitioners to understand the intricate links between the vulnerabilities and outcomes of all people who require safeguarding interventions. This programme would meet CPD requirements for many staff across all agencies and contribute to a better informed workforce and ‘fill a gap’ in the adult educational market. The programme fosters inter-agency working – a key safeguarding priority as well as giving students a formal qualification in Safeguarding, enabling them to demonstrate an ability to study safeguarding at Masters level. This course will contribute to your employability for roles with an emphasis on safeguarding, for example lead roles for safeguarding within organisations as well as meeting CPD requirements for staff.

Opportunity: Student Jobs on Campus ensures that our students are given a first opportunity to fill many part-time temporary positions within the University. This allows you to work while you study with us, fitting the job around your course commitments. By taking part in the scheme, you will gain valuable experiences and employability skills, enhancing your prospects in the job market. It will also allow you to become more involved in University life by delivering, leading and supporting many aspects of the learning experience, from administration to research and mentoring roles. Students can progress into the MSc after successful completion of the PgCert and PgDip.
