About this course
You'll study a range of topics relevant to the implementation of governmental legislation, policies and strategies, gaining new academic skills that will help you to perform your role more effectively.
This includes exploring healthy development, teamworking practices and specilaist coordinator roles in the field of children's or community services.
Studying alongside fellow professionals, you'll reflect on your practical experience by looking at what you know and do well, as well as how you can improve your knowledge to be more effective.
This is a work-based learning degree, so you'll spend at least two days a week with an employer to reflect on theory and practice. Our students usually complete this with their existing employer. If you're not employed, you can volunteer with a relevant organisation for two days a week. Work-based employment can be in schools, children's centres, nurseries, children's services for local or voluntary sectors, and provision for young people or those with specialist needs.
You can complete this degree in two years during one afternoon/evening per week (Tuesdays 1.30-6.30pm for Level 4, Tuesdays 1.30-6.30pm for Level 5), alongside existing work commitments.
