Positive mental health and wellbeing is crucial in enabling children and young people to achieve an enjoyable and fulfilling life. This foundation degree allows students to explore the wide range of contemporary issues which can positively or negatively impact upon the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people. Biological, psychological, social, emotional and political influences are considered in relation to the current crisis in mental health.

For those working to support children and young people, the degree provides a variety of effective, practical, non-specialist, therapeutic approaches. The overarching aim of the degree is to enhance students' understanding, and to develop their practical abilities in order to play an active role in enhancing the life experiences and outcomes for children and young people.

Our foundation degree courses are accredited by the University of Worcester and delivered locally by the Learning Institute, enabling you to study alongside work and family commitments.
