Course content

Ensuring that children and vulnerable adults are kept safe from abuse is a vital component of health and social care. That's why our course offers the chance to analyse and evaluate the current state of theory, policy and practice in this area. You'll be encouraged to consider the nature of child welfare and safeguarding, putting a significant emphasis on anti-oppressive and anti-discriminatory practice.

We will build on your existing learning experiences to provide a critical awareness of issues at the forefront of safeguarding policy and practice. Our flexible learning opportunities will enhance your professional knowledge and lead to big things in your future. Improve the level of care you can provide your clients by increasing your knowledge through our PgC degree.
