Creative Arts for Health and Wellbeing - University of Suffolk

On successful completion of the Foundation Degree students will have developed the skills and awareness to work practically in a variety of settings using creative arts. They will have gained knowledge of a range of relevant populations (including children and young people, older people, people with learning disabilities, mental health and service users) and will have a thorough understanding of the professional framework of creative arts in therapy. This course will enable students to work therapeutically using the creative arts in art, health, care or education contexts. Work may be in the statutory sector or community/voluntary settings. If students already work in creative arts and/or in one of these settings, this award will enhance their existing skills and thus employment potential and opportunities. Students will be supported to find suitable placements in a range of settings and for those who are in paid employment, opportunities, where necessary, for alternative work experiences can be accommodated around employment commitments.
