Social Services Children and Young People
You can work with children and young people in a range of careers from Early Years Practitioner to a Social Worker.
Early year's provision has changed significantly over the years. Today effective early learning and childcare experiences are recognised as playing a key role in future life chances and achievement for children and young people.
Social Service workers provide support and help to people who need it, helping them to live full and valued lives in the community. In particular, they help make sure children have the best start in life, so they grow up to be happy, healthy and secure.
This course will help you gain the knowledge and understanding you’ll need to work successfully in early learning and childcare. It will also develop your knowledge, practical skills and qualities for working with children and young people.
There are two options available for this course:
- 2 Year Programme starting in S5, available at all three campuses
- 1 Year Programme starting in S5 or S6, available for South Ayrshire Schools only
Both options include a work placement. See the course description below for more course information.
