Child and Youth Studies BA (Hons) Degree (Level 6 top-up)
This carefully designed course has been developed to provide progression for those who have completed a Level 5 qualification in Early Years Care and/or Education.
Children’s experiences during their early years create the foundations of who they become. As they mature into young people, their development is shaped by their environment, education and relationships. This course equips you for a career where you can have a positive impact on children and young people (0-19) at the most important stages of their lives. Working with children and young people is also about supporting them through the multitude of transitions they make towards adulthood.
Studying at Level 6 on this course allows you to specialise in those areas that capture your own professional interests, including an in-depth independent study. Insights gained through these in-depth studies will help you take on wider responsibilities in your field of practice. This course can be studied either full-time over one year or part-time over 2 years at Sutton Coldfield College. Lectures are three hours in duration and delivered by highly qualified staff who have excellent academic and practical backgrounds and experience in children’s and young people’s services.
The Degree consists of 4 modules and a dissertation over the year. The modules are:
Independent Study (runs across the year of study)
The Professional Practitioner
Leadership and Management
Social Policy: Context and Implications
Special Educational Needs and Disability
The tuition fee for academic year 2020-21 is £3,550 (part-time) or £7,100 (full-time). Please be aware that we intend to increase tuition fees in subsequent years using the Retail Price Index (RPI-X).
