A new course is being offered by CIT in partnership with the Bessborough Centre, Cork and Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust.  The programme is designed to enable practitioners to stay in close touch with practice, whilst also developing the leadership and educational competencies of practitioner staff.  It also facilitates practitioners from a wide range of specialisms to learn together and learn from each other’s service specific experience in pursuit of integrated cross-service and cross sector practice and management competence.  

This specialist programme will be of interest to practitioners with 2 years prior experience working with children and/or families in a professional capacity.  Practitioners should be at least one-year post qualified and actively engaged in work with children and families at the time of application and for the duration of the programme.  An honours degree (Level 8) in Social Care, Social Work, Youth and Community Work, Early Years Education, Occupational Therapy or similar cognate fields of study is required to apply.

The Certificate in Advanced Clinical Practice with Children and Families is a 30-credit special purpose award at level 9.
