Exciting new course starting September 2016

Postgraduate Certificate in Child Protection Practice


The Social Work and Wellbeing Subject Group will be offering a new Distance Learning Postgraduate Certificate in Child Protection Practice from September 2016.

The aim of the course is to challenge and extend the knowledge base, skills and attitudes of those working in the multi-professional field of child protection and safeguarding. It has been developed to meet the demands of a changing landscape of child protection and safeguarding practice within the UK.

Over one year, students will take three 20 credit modules:

  • Risk and the Protection of Children
  • Vulnerable Children and Young People
  • Child Protection Practice

The course will focus in particular on a critical analysis of the evidence-base for working with children and families, and encourage practitioners to reflect in depth on their own professional practice.
