Applicants will usually be already working in, or in support of, the education system, including early years environments, schools, further education or higher education.
Applicants would normally be expected to have achieved a 2.1 in a social sciences undergraduate degree (or equivalent) and may have professional qualifications related to their existing work experience and role.
We are open to discussion with applicants with non-standard qualifications and / or work experience.
We may also consider whether an applicant's existing qualifications may be recognised as 'advanced standing' in this course content.
Months of entry
The course is suitable for a range of professions engaged in mental health and well-being in education, such as head teachers, teachers, social workers, school nurses, educational psychologists, police and youth justice.
The course is designed for professionals and graduates wishing to understand and optimise the role of mental health and well-being within the education system.
It offers detailed exploration of mental health and well-being across the lifespan within this setting, and unprecedented understanding of factors by which it may be influenced, in learners or students of any age.
This is a training in awareness and practices that may be adopted in an applicant's existing profession rather than training as a psychology professional.
You have the option to study this course over three years and dedicate the third year to completing your dissertation.
