Do you want to be a voice for issues that matter? To make change and empower your community? If so then Advocacy may be the course for you!
Advocacy is taking action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain the services they need. Social policy and service provision is at a turning point, and the debate has highlighted the need for professionals who are able to appreciate the constant change and reconstruction that social policy goes through.
The University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) has a Learning Centre, right here in Sparkhill, where you can get started on our BA Advocacy course and learn about these changes, and the valuable contribution from those who come from different value positions, and social, cultural and economic backgrounds. At UWTSD, we can give students the knowledge and understanding to help themselves, individuals, and communities to gain a voice in their own lives – as well as an increasingly recognised qualification which can help them on their future chosen path whether it be a career, further study or giving their community a voice!
With only 12 hours per week required, the course is accessible to everyone. You don’t need qualifications, just a strong commitment to advocacy.
