Course content

The MA Working for Children and Young People is designed for graduates across the children and young people services who are looking for professional and academic progression. The course may interest graduates working in youth and community work, education, social care, health, youth offending, sports development, community development or the voluntary sector.

What makes the course so different is its focus on inter professional practice, and how the needs of children, young people, families and communities can best be met in a rapidly changing policy, strategic and operational context.

Throughout the MA, you will recognise the increasing need for those working in social educational, voluntary and third sector public services to collaborate. you will explore the benefits gained by exchanging professional information and co-ordination of service responses to children, young people, families and communities. You will also study the ethical dimensions required to work effectively in inter-professional teams of service providers, whilst also learning about safeguarding and European models of practice with children and young people.
