    Programme details for Childhood and Youth BA (Hons)

    The Government agenda has seen the need for a more integrated and responsive service that includes emotional and mental health support for children and young people, extended and out-of-school care, play work, behaviour support and youth justice. The Childhood and Youth BA (Hons) develops graduates who can contribute to, and improve upon, the services that support children, young people, their families and wider communities. The degree supports both academic and professional development to enhance students’ skills and career prospects. We explore a range of topics affecting children, young people and their families, for example, mental health, youth offending, Inclusion and diversity, poverty.
