This integrated foundation year will enable you to transition onto our BA (Hons) Working with Children, Young People & Families course. It will also help you prepare for academic life at university.

As part of the foundation year, you’ll:

  • Study health and community studies-related modules that will give you a broad understanding of the multi-disciplinary health and social care sector

  • Undertake role-play with professional actors as part of your training. They’ll take on the role of vulnerable people and you'll be able to learn from their video diaries and blogs
