Psychology has an important role to play in understanding how children and young people think, learn, feel and behave in various contexts, including family, school and the community. Through this course, we explore how psychology and education come together to improve children’s life chances. This course is ideal for you if your interest lies at the interface of applied psychological research and real-world applications in educational contexts. We focus on evidence based practice both from the point of view of building the evidence base through research, but also from an applied perspective e.g., learning and practising behavioural skills that are core components of evidence-based approaches.
Whether your background is in psychology, education, social sciences or a related discipline, and whether you are a student or currently working as a practitioner, educationalist or in the voluntary sector, this course is designed to provide you with the latest evidence from applied research. It focuses on what works for improving children’s academic, emotional, behavioural and social outcomes, how evidence for practice is generated, and the current state of play in early intervention for children at risk or children with special education needs.
