MA Applied Public Policy - Children and Young Peoples Services
The Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Public Policy: Children and Young Peoples Services is a 1 year part-time award developed collaboratively by the Vauxhall Centre for the Study of Crime, The Vulnerable Young People Research Unit and The Child and Family Research Centre and the Social Work, Professional Practice and Law Research Unit at the University of Bedfordshire, located within the Institute of Applied Social Research (IASR). It will be the first non-professional M level award in the department.
It is a most timely award, geared to the demands of the governments 2020 Children and Young Peoples Workforce Strategy. The course aims to provide advanced career enhancement opportunities for senior practitioners and managers within children and young peoples services as well as for graduates seeking employment in these fields.
The course will draw upon the unique range of expertise available within the Institute for Applied Social Research and the Faculty more broadly. Each unit would be taught by nationally and internationally recognised experts, engaged in cutting-edge, practice and policy-oriented research and scholarship. Currently, there is no other M level programme of this nature on offer.
The PGC aims to:
- Promote relevant and meaningful teaching and learning that reflects the development needs of professionals within children and young peoples service environments
- Enhance participants potential career prospects across professional boundaries within children and young peoples services by facilitating the identification of future learning and professional development goals
- Provide an appropriate learning environment in which participants can apply the evidence-based knowledge and skills acquired from learning to further develop and evidence their personal and professional effectiveness through a range of methods
- Enhance participants ability to access and critically appraise material from a range of academic sources
