Crossfields Institute Level 3 Diploma in Social Pedagogy – Open Course

 

Join our brand new qualification

We’re pleased to announce the first open course forming part of our new Crossfields Institute Level 3 Diploma in Social Pedagogy. This is an excellent personal and professional development opportunity for anyone interested in social pedagogy. The 47-credit qualification is regulated by Ofqual and divided into 7 units:

(Unit 1) Key theories and principles in social pedagogy
(Unit 2) Learning perspectives on human development
(Unit 3) Communication and understanding lifeworlds
(Unit 4) Building meaningful relationships
(Unit 5) Creativity in working with individuals, groups, and communities
(Unit 6) Safer practice from a social pedagogical perspective
(Unit 7) Observation and reflective practice within a social pedagogical culture

The qualification consists of our 8-day, face-to-face course, which draws on experiential, active and reflective learning methods to:

  • Develop practice by integrating social pedagogical theories and principles
  • Practice with greater confidence, intention and creativity
  • Enhance important interpersonal skills such as communication, relational and reflective skills

You will have access to our Moodle virtual learning environment and be supported in your learning and assessment through a variety of tasks, including some written and reflective work, presentation, and a creative scrapbook.

The qualification is approved by the Social Pedagogy Professional Association and meets its Standards of Proficiency in Social Pedagogy. As a graduate you may carry the title of Social Pedagogy Practitioner. The qualification is also accepted as an entry requirement by the University of Central Lancashire for their BA in Social Pedagogy, Advocacy and Participation.
