Why choose this course?

Our innovative courses are designed for those working or volunteering with children dealing with trauma. Enhance your career prospects by specialising in this unique subject area.


This specialist course provides a vital insight into childhood trauma and post-traumatic growth and ensures those working with the most vulnerable children in society are trained to the highest standard. The course incorporates best practice in the sector and focuses on key areas that will enable you to become an engaged expert.


Each year the programme team and students join with The Consortium for Therapeutic Communities to present an exciting and innovative conference, supported by Care Forum Wales and sponsored by leading childcare organizations. In this way students on this programme have opportunities to interact with leading national and international representatives from practice and research within the Therapeutic Child Care sector.


While not all students will want to progress to a third year there is an opportunity to ‘top up’ the FdA award to a full BA (Hons) degree in Therapeutic Child Care.
