The course provides learning opportunities for experienced professionals to develop advanced levels of professional practice in work with (or on behalf of) vulnerable children, young people and their families. It establishes a knowledge foundation of key theoretical and practice frameworks which will be used to build critical engagement with a range of contemporary practice themes in inter-professional work to better understand the impact of abuse and neglect and to develop effective strategies to promote better outcomes.
Students will acquire a critical understanding of the theory and practice of child welfare and protection within a contemporary Scottish context. Contemporary national and international research and literature will inform your understanding and you will develop a critical and reflective understanding of the complex personal, professional, structural and organisational influences which impact on analysis, planning and evaluation in this critical area.
Participants will be either self-funding or will have sought funding from their employer.
