Recognising the increasingly high-profile nature of child protection issues requiring an integrated multi-agency service response, our Child Protection course is for practitioners working in settings such as:
- social work
- voluntary sector
Our course will enhance your existing skills in this sector and prepare you for a more senior specialist career.
This programme has been developed in the context of contemporary policy and practice developments relating to children’s protection and well-being in Scotland.
You will have the opportunity to critically explore theoretical frameworks, research, and practice issues across professional and disciplinary boundaries in a multiagency practice environment. You will also develop a child-centred perspective in addressing the protection of children and young people.
The programme is delivered on a part-time basis over one year, and adopts a blended learning approach, utilising online learning supported by twelve study days at UWS Paisley or Lanarkshire campuses.
