¿Qué aprenderé?

The MSc in Child Protection and Adult Safeguarding offers a unique perspective into both children and adult safeguarding, covering the latest trends and policies in safeguarding, highlighting specific groups who may be at risk of certain types of abuse or targeting, to the services that should be used to protect and provide an accessible and supportive safeguarding framework.

What will I study?

The contemporary nature of the course means that any current trends in safeguarding are explored and changes in policy are considered from the impact on safeguarding practice.

Our course is delivered through the use of various media and teaching approaches, which include discussion-based seminars where students are able to explore safeguarding practice in their own organisations, lectures and the use of media such as blogs to consider specific topics during the teaching programme. Some modules demand your input to shape the content, giving you the opportunity to influence what is addressed through the teaching to benefit your practice.

The teaching is spread across a number of disciplines including health, social work and psychology. This is supported by experts and specialists who share their knowledge on specific modules, offering a diverse range of knowledge of safeguarding in the practice environment.

The individual role as a leader and manager in safeguarding is given its own module, as understanding the impact of your ability to lead in safeguarding is essential to developing good practice across your current organisation and those you may work with in the future.

How will I be taught and assessed?

BNU offers flexible study spread over one or two years, allowing you to study full-time or part-time alongside employment.

Whether you're training to build your skills in your current role or change your career path, this course ensures you can immediately apply your increased knowledge in a professional setting.

As well as support from your lecturers, who are experts in their field, you will also benefit from a range of guest speakers who provide specialised workshops that add to your knowledge. Their expertise and real world experience will inspire and emphasise how your qualification can be used to benefit others.

There are a range of processes used across the course to assess you which include:

  • informal and formal blogs
  • presentations to the student group
  • posters
  • exams
  • essay submissions.

For the dissertation, you are encouraged to complete either primary research or a specific project that can change practice within their organisations. This makes the course relevant to improving safeguarding for at risk groups within your chosen specific area of practice.

You are supported through two modules to prepare for the dissertation and have the opportunity to apply for APEL if the research modules have been completed in another relevant course.

What are my career prospects?

If you want to develop a career in safeguarding practice, this course will prepare you for job roles such as policy developer, researcher, team leader, programme manager or unit manager in the NHS, local government and charities.

Previous students have seen their careers soar on completion of the programme, as they are then considered ‘experts’ or ‘specialists’ with a broad range of knowledge to build on and have usually demonstrated this through their dissertation research or project.

For those not yet in a safeguarding role, the course offers the opportunity to change direction to the safeguarding career pathway in a range of settings, both nationally and internationally.
