About this course


Course option

1.0year

Full-time | 2019

The intention of this degree is to prepare students for work in the local area in occupations such as social work, health, education, human resources and probation to name but a few. Such a qualification would greatly increase their chances of gaining employment within the area.

As a result, the taught modules have been designed to increase students’ knowledge of the key sectors and client groups that they are likely to be working with upon graduation or completion of further training – namely young people, adults suffering from mental and physical health issues and the world of policing and crime. In addition, the fourth taught module aims to equip them with the skills to work successfully in teams, take on leadership roles, motivate others and learn how to implement conflict resolution.
The dissertation module enables individual students to address an issue of particular interest to themselves in considerable depth.
Our ongoing engagement with employers identifies the need for individuals with an appropriate level of sector knowledge, but also focused upon the need for softer skills such as communication, inter-personal skills and experience working in public facing organisations. The programme is designed to promote progression to employment in any of the key fields by covering these key themes.
