Caring for Vulnerable Children

  • In times of austerity and shrinking public services, the task of identifying and caring for vulnerable children has never been more challenging.
  • And we’ll look at the particular skills involved in communicating with children and young people.
  • The knowledge you gain from this course may prompt you to explore or extend a career in child care or social work services.
  • You’ll also consider the role you play in responding to and caring for the children and young people who you encounter in different aspects of your life.
  • We hope to inspire and challenge you to think differently about how we, as a society, care for vulnerable children and the future lives we help them to create.
