Program description

Awarded by: University of Central Lancashire

The Foundation Degree in Children, Young People and their Services offers an exciting pathway for developing a career with children and young people, including primary teaching and social work. The programme focuses on working with children from 0-18 years, in both education and social care settings. The programme was designed in response to changes in government policy which implied an integrated approach to delivering services to children and young people. It is awarded by the University of Central Lancashire, UCLan.

The full-time route takes two years to complete, studying 6 modules during each year and involves attending lectures over one full day at Kendal College main site on Milnthorpe Road, Kendal, and two days per week in a relevant setting.

Students may use this qualification to enhance their employment opportunities in the education and care sectors, such as a lead professional, or undertake a third year to achieve a BA (Hons) Degree in a range of subjects including Children, School and Families, here at Kendal College or Education and Professional studies at Preston. On completion of a BA (Hons) degree, students may choose to progress to a Post Graduate Certificate in Education in order to gain Qualified Teacher Status or go onto a MA in Social Work.

The Foundation Degree will enable practitioners, children’s services employees, teaching assistants, play workers, and interested students to have access to a higher level qualification that is directly relevant to day-to-day employment and experience.
