Course summary

**This course is primarily designed for face to face learning with you attending your lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the campus is closed TEC Partnership will deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted with some lessons happening in small groups and others happening using online sessions and support. We will make decisions on the delivery hours for each programme as government advice becomes clearer. For the placements in your programme, TEC Partnership will do everything it can to ensure you have the opportunity to complete the placement element of your programme and/or potentially, where possible, amend the programme removing the requirement for placement (or part of it) if there is likely to be difficulty**. Social Care workers play a pivotal role in the support and care of vulnerable children and adults within a rapid changing society. There has never been a more poignant time for those wishing to develop a career within the social care sector or for those to who already work within the sector to undertake study which will provide them with the essential skills, knowledge and practice experience to gain formal qualifications in Social Care.The FdA Social Care programme aims to provide students with the underpinning legislative, theoretical and policy knowledge which underpins Social Care practice. Students will be provided with the opportunity to develop transferable skills in research and academic writing along with critical thinking and reflective practice skills crucial when working in this complex sector. Key topics within the fields of Sociology, Psychology, Social Policy will investigated along with more practice specific topics such as person-centred practice, equality and diversity, and safeguarding. Social Care does not function in isolation and the role of multi-agency working with other professionals from health, education and other support sectors will be embedded within the relevant modules.
