Taking the UN Guidelines as a framework, this free online course will help you gain insight into how the unnecessary placement of a child in alternative care can be prevented; how alternative care can constitute a suitable, positive experience for a child when it is necessary; and how children and young people who are leaving care can best be supported. Learn with alternative care specialists from CELCIS, UNICEF and the UN.
An international inter-agency group, including Better Care Network, commissioned CELCIS, based in the University of Strathclyde, to develop the MOOC. The course is delivered through FutureLearn, the social learning platform.
