Postgraduate Certificate Open for Applications

Now entering into it’s third year, the PG Certificate on Children and Young People in Conflict with the Law is a fully online, part-time professional development qualification that offers students  the flexibility to enhance their knowledge, skills and continued professional development whilst maintaining existing professional and personal commitments. 

Delivered by a team of multitalented social work, psychology, and research professionals, the course provides a comprehensive and consolidated learning experience on children in conflict with the law through a developmental lens, whilst also considering the implications for young people in conflict with the law as they transition to adulthood.

Drawing from a variety of approaches and disciplines including social work and social policy, psychology, health, and law you’ll develop a critical understanding of the rights of children and young people in conflict with the law, how well these are being upheld and existing challenges to being fully rights respecting.

You’ll also develop a theoretically informed understanding of the developmental pathways of children and young people finding themselves in conflict with the law alongside practice models of assessment, formulation, and intervention.  

To find out more about this exciting opportunity and what it could mean for your professional practice, join Carole Murphy and Maureen Roberts at a dedicated Q&A session on 14th September, 12 – 13:00, or visit the course webpage. Alternatively you can send any queries to

The deadline for applications is October 31st, with the course itself beginning in January.
