MA Working for Children and Young People is for those who are professionally qualified in youth work at undergraduate level and looking for professional and academic progression.
What makes the MA Working for Children and Young People 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.
The postgraduate course may interest graduates wishing to study a contemporary, relevant and challenging postgraduate programme who have studied related subjects, such as education, social care, health, youth offending, sports or community development or the voluntary sector.
You will recognise the increasing responsibility for those working in socio-educational, voluntary and third sector public services to collaborate in an increasing variety of inter and multiagency contexts. You will explore the benefits of exchanges of professional information and coordination of service responses to children, young people, families and communities.
