Our Positive Practice with Children and Young People BA (Hons) Top Up programme is for students from UCBC who have successfully completed the FdA in Positive Practice with Children & Young People who now wish to specialise at a higher level studying for a BA (Hons) qualification. You will undertake five modules including a dissertation and will be able to specialise in a particular area through option modules. The focus of the course is on recruiting more people to the children's workforce, developing skills for partnership working and developing and enhancing leadership, management and supervision skills within the children and young person's workforce.

Modules

The course is delivered over four terms of one academic year, and students will complete a common core of 3 compulsory Modules accompanied by 2 option Modules, all running throughout the year to ensure a planned sustained programme of independent and advanced academic learning and ongoing personal and practice-based development. The nature of student contact will vary to accommodate the needs of the different Modules. There will be some formal input on theories of research and other relevant academic content followed by one-to-one consultation with the student and the employer involved. All other Modules will be delivered on a weekly basis up to the end of April to provide students with ongoing input and guidance, with the emphasis remaining on the need for students to become independent and autonomous learners. The general aim of the programme is to develop key transferable skills which are directly relevant to working with children and young people and youth practice generally.

?Dissertation (double Module worth 40 credits) - Compulsory
?Professional Development - Compulsory
?Management and Organisations - Compulsory

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
