The MA in Contemporary Practice with Children and Young People will enhance your knowledge and academic confidence. It provides specialist knowledge in children’s rights and participation and child safeguarding as well as an introduction to a broad range of practical, legal and theoretical approaches.
Aimed at practitioners working with children and young people who wish to update their knowledge or develop their ability to critique and innovate in their practice, the course is also suitable for recent graduates seeking to specialise in this area.
The course has local links to voluntary and statutory sector provision for children and young people in social work, education and health. It is also part of the European Network of Masters in Children’s Rights and through this provides opportunities to engage with international networks.
This course will involve access to children and/or vulnerable adults. You will be required to obtain a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service clearance (formerly termed CRB) and we will guide you through this process.
If a full-time student cannot continue their studies then there is an exit award of a Postgraduate Certificate in Contemporary Practice with Children and Young People which is detailed in the programme specification. To be eligible for this award, a student must have obtained 60 credits.
For any MA student who cannot continue their studies and who has 120 credits, there is an exit award of a Postgraduate Diploma in Contemporary Practice with Children and young People.
