This syllabus aims at clarifying the new programme “Diploma in Child and Youth Care Work” a professional-oriented diploma.
The basic idea is to develop a new educational program based on these new insights, focusing on children and young people in vulnerable situations. This new educational program will be developed with the support of several partners.
The aim of the course Child and Youth Care Work is to train professionals who are able to anticipate and deal with the needs and expectations of organisations, services and institutions. This is why the programme is field-oriented and attaches great value to practical experience. The students strive to achieve the integration of the theoretical concepts, acquired throughout the programme, with the work experience, gained through their internship. The course will be collaborative conducted by the University of Leuven Limburg, Belgium.
