Young lives: is now a good time to be young?

This free course, Young lives: is now a good time to be young?, looks at young lives in the UK today, asking the question is this a good time to be young? It focuses on some of the factors that influence the divergent lives and complex experiences of children and young people today, taking an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the lives of children and young people. It focuses on some of the key issues in young lives such as continuing inequality and why some children and young people are more the focus of policy and intervention than others. It is written for both people working with, or intending to work with, children and young people and for those who have a more general interest in issues and debates related to children and young people.

Children and young people: food and food marketing free course icon Level

Children and young people: food and food marketing

This free course, Children and young people: food and food marketing, examines food as a health issue and addresses children and young people’s agency and their rights. It addresses obesity, food marketing and also food as a way of expressing children’s and young people’s identities (family, class, cultural, generational). Discussing key issues that in research and thinking about food, including how policies tackling obesity are framed, it draws across work from Childhood and Youth Studies and Psychology to challenge the rhetoric of 'healthy choices' and consider why it's essential to go beyond the individual to understand systems and environments that currently fail children and their health. The following video explores the concepts covered in this course.

Working with young people: Roles and responsibilities free course icon Level

Education & Development 

Working with young people: Roles and responsibilities

In this free course, Working with young people: Roles and responsibilities, we look at the roles that are taken when working with young people. We focus on what those working with young people actually do, starting with some analysis of roles. We show that, in the context of work with young people, the term is more than simply a statement about who does what: it also says something about the kinds of relationships we form with young people and the values we bring to our work. We then move on to discuss roles in relation to the 'bigger picture' of organisations and projects that are concerned with young people.
