Overview

The MA in Child Care Law and Practice from Keele University   also aims to develop research and analytical skills and to provide a foundation for pursuing further study at doctoral level. It is taught by members of the School of Law and a variety of guest lecturers. The MA in Childcare Law and Practice is an interdisciplinary course that attracts students from a wide variety of professional backgrounds.

Aims

The central aims of the course are to update and enhance knowledge of relevant law and research literature and to provide an opportunity for experienced practitioners to further develop and critically reflect upon their skills, as applied to a variety of areas and settings in work with children.
