Community and Social Care: Policy and Practice (Foundation Entry) - University of Central Lancashire

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 are a mature student (aged 18 or over) without formal qualifications and want to study community and social care at university level, this foundation degree is for you - successfully complete it and you’ll be guaranteed a place on our BA (Hons) Community and Social Care: Policy and Practice degree. You’ll gain the communication, study and information management skills you need to study at degree level while exploring a broad range of social science and welfare-related subjects, including understanding and working with individuals, families and communities, volunteering and community development. 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.
