Community and Social Care: Policy and Practice

If you want to make a difference in your community, this applied degree will help you develop a wider understanding of social welfare, social exclusion and disadvantage. You’ll get to grips with the policy and systems of service delivery, issues of power and oppression and social justice, as well as community development and human and social needs, all with an emphasis on delivering strength based practice. In your second and third years you can choose from a wide range of modules to suit your interests and ambitions, including social enterprise, homelessness, race and ethnicity, mental health, people with learning disabilities, disability studies, youth studies, social pedagogy, safeguarding and substance misuse. Graduates have gone onto work for a wide variety of employers in welfare settings, the voluntary and charitable sectors, education, the police, probation and the national offender service, youth offending teams, homelessness agencies, substance misuse agencies and the advice and research agencies in the voluntary or statutory sectors. The course also provides a good preparation for professional training at postgraduate level in areas such as probation, social work, housing management, teaching or academic research. You’ll be encouraged to secure your own structured work experience – encouraging engagement and ownership – providing relevant interview and ‘real-life’ job application experience.
