Children, Schools and Families (Foundation Entry)

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. If you’d like to work with children, young people and the services that support them, this course draws on subject areas including education, sociology, psychology, social policy and social work to give you a solid grounding for your career. Taught by academics across two Schools, you’ll examine the services, systems, policies and work practices that relate to children and young people in schools, with families and in care settings. You’ll carry out observational visits and work shadowing activities alongside the academic side of your degree, integrating theory, policy and practice so that you are well prepared for a rewarding career. Our graduates have secured jobs working in a range of settings across the spectrum of the Children and Young People’s Workforce including children’s centres, schools, national charities, nurseries and family and community support. Our students have also gone on to obtain professional status in Teaching, Social Work and Early Years.
