Course content

Recognise and champion the uniqueness of every child as you take a 'whole child' holistic approach to children and the issues that affect them and their families. You will have the opportunity to study theory and develop your practice through two distinct routes Early Years or Children and Young People.

We are committed to promoting children's legal rights, social justice for children, child-centred learning and developing awareness of social divisions in childhood, and these themes will be at the heart of this course and will form the basis of your study and research, whichever route you choose.
