In this free course, Youth justice in the UK: diversity in practice and principle, you will explore what happens to children in different parts of the UK when the things they do are labelled as criminal. In Scotland, Northern Ireland, England and Wales, different principles guide the systems that respond to children's problematic behaviour. This course will help you to understand those differences and explore their implication for practice.
