Bachelor of Child, Youth and Family Practice
Griffith University - Distance ed

Course outline

Fostering healthy families and creating safe environments for children and youth are key goals for communities. In this degree, you will learn about service delivery centred on young people and families. You’ll be taught by experts with strong links to the health sector, government and community, who deliver content with a personal touch. You will experience a hands-on learning environment whether you’re studying on campus or via distance education. You will study the processes and structures related to providing services in specialist areas such as childcare, education, welfare, development and learning. Child protection and ethics are also a key focus. Study areas include child and family wellbeing, child protection, ethics, human development and learning, interpersonal skills, leadership and practice in early years, integrated services and sociocultural understanding. In your third year, you’ll undertake a professional placement, enabling you to enhance your practical experience. This includes working five days each week during your placement period. Supervised professional practice will enable you to apply and refine your skills for working with children and families.
