Course Description

Disability and Child Protection: Towards New Understanding


This cutting edge micro-credential aims to provide learners with an understanding of key issues in the area of disability and child protection. It is designed to meet the specific training needs of all education, health, social care and policing professionals working in the area of disability, child protection and welfare or sectors where the client base includes individuals who may have a disability.

The micro-credential aims to provide learners with an understanding of key issues in the area of disability and child protection. Uptake of current best evidence, insights from seminal inquiry reports, innovations and insights from disability theory, research, and activism as well as practice wisdom will be instrumental in achieving this.

Micro-Credential Outline

This contemporary micro-credential allows flexibility in many of its components and will be delivered fully online. The relevant sector in Ireland is demanding and many professionals must juggle demands of work and home life leading to the need for flexible learning at the learner’s pace. This module therefore entails seven hours of synchronous learning (in the form of live tutorial classes) combined with the other key components consisting of pre-recorded lectures, reflective exercises, independent study & assessment preparation to be completed asynchronously. We feel that the flexibility in the delivery of the micro-credential will be attractive to the target employer and professional learner, making this micro-credential a competitive offering
