Do you want to make a difference in the lives of children and their families? If you're serious about a career within the child and family welfare sector, then this is the course for you.
Children and their families are high on the political and social agenda. Almost every week issues are raised by politicians and the media about how best to support children and families, and the point at which a formal or legal intervention becomes appropriate.
Within the programme, you will also have the opportunity to attend external visits to family support settings to liaise with practitioners and see how services work 'on the ground'.

On this course you will study a range of modules which may include the following:
A variety of assessment methods are used, matched to the learning outcomes for the programme, to enable students to demonstrate the full range of knowledge and skills that they have developed. There is some scope for students to be involved in negotiating and evaluating some assessment.
In addition to each of your module assessments you will take a programme level assessment in each of the first and second year of your programme. This is designed to assess your understanding of everything you have been taught and to help you to understand how different elements of your degree fit together to make a coherent programme. You will be given weekly directed activities to complete in each module. These will contribute marks towards the final module assessment and reward engagement with the content of the module. They will also help you to check your understanding of what has been taught. Some of these activities may include further reading or preparation tasks for seminars. Some of the tasks will be completed online and may include quizzes which provide you with instant feedback on your understanding of the module content. In some modules lecturers may place some of the taught content on videos which you may be required to watch prior to attending a class. This will free up time for you to work on meaningful projects in class. On this programme there are some assessments which are marked on a pass/fail basis rather than graded. Please note that these assessments are excluded from the calculations made to produce the figures published in the Key Information Set (KIS) for this programme/subject.
