This course has been specifically designed to provide a top-up degree that provides a direct route to graduate status for those wishing to progress their career within the Children’s Workforce Development Council.
The Childhood Studies (Top-up) (Online) (Hons) programme at Teesside University modules build on the knowledge and skills gained during previous level 5 study. The module content enables you to critically explore wider debates associated with the children’s workforce. For example the Ethical Practice for Working with Children module will debate ethical issues associated with safeguarding children, confidentiality and professional boundaries. This online learning course is delivered over three semesters.
This takes into consideration the demands of online learning and full time employment, and allows additional time for you to successfully complete your dissertation. You progress through the course one module at a time, which enables you to receive feedback on submitted assignments and gain feedforward in order to progress your academic writing further. It also minimises unnecessary assignment bunching and enables both you and your tutors to monitor your progress throughout the course.
