Student Welfare is a dynamic sequence that provides you with an understanding of young people and children as they transition into adolescence. Students will be engaged in discussing issues, strategies and options for working with young people. The focus is on improving your practice as a teacher. Schools want teachers with a robust mix of skills given the diversity of children and young people in the public setting. The youth work units can be undertaken in a student welfare sequence or as stand-alone electives. These units are offered in summer and winter semesters to be more flexible for students to complete.
