About

The Child Protection and Welfare course from Trinity College Dublin places particular emphasis on the multi-disciplinary nature of child protection and family support interventions. It will assist professionals to become research focused and enhance their ability to become more evidence based in their practice. 

Overview

Postgraduate Diploma in Child Protection and Welfare

The Child Protection and Welfare course from Trinity College Dublin, which is sponsored by the Child and Family Agency, is a one-year, part-time, multi-disciplinary course offering a postgraduate qualification to practitioners and service managers whose work involves the protection and welfare of children. The course aims to enhance the knowledge base of professionals in statutory and voluntary services meeting the needs of vulnerable children and families. 

M.Sc. in Child Protection and Welfare (online)

A second year leading to a M.Sc. in Child Protection and Welfare is available to eligible candidates who have completed the Postgraduate Diploma with a 2.1 or better result. The M.Sc. is designed to build on the Postgraduate Diploma and aims to develop applied research skills in the field of child protection and welfare and is delivered completely online.

Careers & Alumni

The postgraduate diploma is undertaken by practitioners already working in statutory and voluntary organisations providing child protection and welfare service who are released for the block course weeks. Feedback from former course participants indicates that successful completion of the course provides them with opportunities for change and promotion within their organisations. A number of students go on to complete further study up to doctoral level.

The multi-disciplinary nature of the course also provides linkage opportunities between different services, and each cohort of students represents a network of practitioners which endures long after the completion of the course and continues to promotes inter agency and inter professional collaboration. Past students are kept abreast of any learning events that take place in TCD.

External examiners of the course have commented on the value to employers of supporting staff participation, and rate it as a unique and important source of professional development in child protection.
