We will help you get ready to apply for jobs and go to interviews through workshops provided by our Careers and Employability Service and our lecturing staff.
You will undertake an independent project in your final year enabling you to investigate topics of interest to support your future career.
We will guide you towards reflective learning across your curriculum via lectures, workshops and assessments.
All our teaching, across all units, is based on new and established research regarding today’s social challenges.
Your assignments are based on real case studies and case conferences, while extra curriculum opportunities will allow you to learn first-hand more about real-life issues.
Our links with employers provide extra curricular activities in simulated assessment centres (dependant on funding).
Ethics and safeguarding is crucially important in Human Services, and this is emphasised in specific units (e.g. child protection) as well as in your dissertation where you will submit ethical considerations.
Making the client central to decisions about their life and care is at the heart of Human Services and so this is taught across many units.
You will benefit from our close links with relevant services and agencies through their visits.
Through the Teaching and Learning project 2015 we are engaging with employers around enhancing student employability.
