In this Option Module students will discuss the value of including and engaging men in working with children and young people. The term ‘men’ is discussed in the broadest sense meaning male parents, carers and practitioners. This is an emerging area of practice. Examples of work-based practice of effective activities and projects that bring men into work with children and young people will be discussed.

LO1 Plan a strategy for engaging men in the work-place (Formative assessment)
