    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    The challenges of developing and launching a new education programme in Child and Youth Care (CYC) are explored by three Programme/Course leaders in Child and Youth Care education. Rika Swanzen from Monash University, South Africa, Heather Snell from Humber College Canada, and Graham McPheat from the University of Strathclyde, Scotland co-author this article describing how the Child and Youth Development Bachelor and Honours Degrees at Monash University, the Bachelor of Child and Youth Care degree at Humber College and the Master of Science graduate degree in Child and Youth Care at the University of Strathclyde offer innovative opportunities in Child and Youth Care education. In addition to describing these three specific degree programmes the authors collaborate in the identification of trends, challenges and opportunities for continued curriculum and programme development in Child and Youth Care education.
