Next available course:
The BA (Hons) programme considers therapeutic approaches to working with families, with a particular emphasis on working holistically with hard-to-reach families. Through the programme, students are provided with the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding of social, sociological, psychological and legislative theories and perspectives and apply these sensitively to work with families. The overall aim is to introduce students to a range of analytical approaches and an understanding of the wider social, political and economic issues related to family support work and to support students to develop personal, academic and professional expertise in partnership with employers and other stakeholders in relation to family support practice in the workplace.
Only students who have studied the Foundation Degree Family Support and Wellbeing or Foundation Degree Working with Young People at Blackpool and The Fylde College and have achieved a minimum of a pass will be considered for this top-up course.
Modules and Assessment
Teaching and Learning Methods
Whilst lectures, seminars and practical workshops feature strongly in the teaching and learning strategy, we will be making considerable use of alternative methods of delivery and study, particularly online options such as tutor and self-assessment revision tests and formative exercises, power-point and other software-based lecture material, learning portals and hyper-linked resource-materials. Students may expect therefore to participate in a wide variety of learning activities including; live and online projects, presentations and discussion alongside more traditional modes of delivery.
Work Placement and Field Trips
Other Costs and Equipment Needed
