Course content

If you have an interest in safeguarding children, young people and adults, then this is the course to develop and advance your skills. Get equipped with the latest in-depth knowledge underpinning practice on a course that develops you in a multi-agency context. 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 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.
