Innovation In Pedagogic Services
If you want to make a contribution to these contemporary social challenges involving the relationship between children and youth and their guardians and educators, this might be the Master's for you.
In this programme you will learn how to research issues surrounding children and youth, and contribute to the drafting of new policies that can improve their position, welfare and development.
- the quality of pedagogical and educational services, such as childcare, youth care, schools and sports clubs;
- how to look at pedagogy that addresses societal issues such as cultural diversity, inclusion, and social justice;
- how to use academic pedagogical knowledge in intercultural, interdisciplinary, and international collaboration;
- professional practice in relation to initiatives undertaken by civil society and youth themselves.
Developing An International Vision
We will also be looking beyond our borders. After all, global developments (such as globalisation, poverty and migration) have had a major impact on the quality of life for children and youth. And we will also be analysing pedagogical services through an international lens:
- What frameworks are used in setting up youth care in the Netherlands compared to countries outside of Europe?
- How can the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child be given shape in youth policy worldwide?
This programme leads to the Master of Science (MSc) diploma and the NVO registration as Educationalist (basis pedagoog). After receiving your diploma, you can work in various types of jobs.
Past experience has shown that students who have completed this programme are well prepared for a job as a junior researcher or PhD candidate.
