  • Academic title
    BA (Hons) Applied Social Studies (Adult) or (Children, Young People, their Families and Carers) (Top-up)
  • Course description
    If you choose the Adult Pathway, it enables you to build a better knowledge of the wants, needs and experiences of service users. You will critically explore the process of assessment of need, and planning and commissioning of services for adult service users. The effectiveness of practices which are intended to manage risk, safeguard adults and promote choice, independence and wellbeing are also considered.

    If you are specialising in Children, Young People, their Families and Carers, you'll investigate the nature of the contemporary family, current policy and the legal framework which informs your practice. You'll gain a greater understanding of children with complex needs, of assessments based around ‘risk and resilience’ and how to utilise research. The complex social psychological and emotional needs of looked after children, including those in institutions, will also be closely examined.

    Both awards will help you develop specialist level skills in professional communication. You will gain a holistic understanding of learning disability across the life course and undertake work-based learning and assessment to develop and demonstrate knowledge (generic and specialist) of your social work setting.
