The MA Education (Children and Young People’s Mental Health) has been designed to meet the interests and professional development needs of a range of professionals who are working in education and related settings, such as health and social care and social services. The programme explores different conceptualisations of mental health, examines the risk and protective factors which influence mental health, and considers the benefits of a whole school approach to mental health. You will also engage in meaningful and impactful research and enhance your understanding of the nature of educational enquiry and the analytical processes that support research-informed practice. If you are seeking to develop your practice and gain expertise in the field of children and young people’s mental health, then this is the programme for you. You will benefit from exceptional personalised support, tailored to your individual professional interests and needs, and a flexible hybrid delivery model where you will normally attend classes online and on campus. The blend of students from different professional backgrounds will enable discussion, debate and the sharing of experiences in a supportive and welcoming environment, facilitated by staff who are experts in children and young people’s mental health. You will also develop essential transferable skills, from purposeful and effective communication to utilising a range of media, making justifiable decisions in complex and unpredictable situations, and planning appropriate targets for improvement.
