BA (Hons) Social Pedagogy, Advocacy and Participation
UCLan is the first university in the UK to bring together the three traditions of Social Pedagogy, Advocacy and Participation.
Social pedagogy is not what you do but how you do it. Key to this is a belief that relationships are central to any engagement with individuals and groups. Notions of well-being, learning and growth based on humanistic values are fundamentally important. Advocacy and participation are about speaking up for people, people speaking up for themselves and working out how to influence decisions and bring about change. Social pedagogy, advocacy and participation are concerned with rights and empowerment.
The course offers a blended approach to learning with a mix of modules taught at the university, online modules, residential modules and work based learning. This means students will only need to attend the university one day a week. The course adopts a creative and experiential learning approach, with a distinctive focus of academic study and a strong link to practice with children, young people and adults. It aligns closely with employers’ requirements to work in a co-productive, service user led and participative fashion.
We’d like to invite members of your staff who might be interested in doing the course, as well as anybody who can offer work based learning/placements to our information seminars on:
Wednesday 20th April between 9.30 – 12.30 in Harrington Building HA320
Please send any queries to Jane Lloyd (Course leader)
