30 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: This module explores the theories and practices employed across the `Children's Workforce', including the relationships which exist between agencies and professionals who work with children and young people. The complex issues arising from calls for `Working Together' are examined from a variety of perspectives - social work, education, youth justice and community - in order that current policy and practice can be evaluated and thus lead to innovative and effective ways of working with children and young people.
