Advocacy (BA)

Advocacy courses have been developed at UWTSD to ensure that the capacity of individuals to act independently and make their own free choices, empowerment and the voice of the individual and/or community is promoted in all aspects of society.

The debate around social policy and service provision has highlighted the need for professionals who are able to appreciate how social policies are continuously reconstructed and changed and the contribution to these processes from those who come from different value positions and different social, cultural and economic backgrounds.

With the introduction of the Social Services and Well-being Act (Wales) 2014, there is a statutory requirement to hear the voice of services uses through the use of advocates, both instructed and non-instructed.

Why choose this course?

  • This is the first Advocacy (BA) qualification in Wales and the UK.
  • All content is co-constructed with professional advocates in Wales from a wide practitioner base, which aligns with Welsh Government directives.
  • Research-active staff, who also engage in theory and practice in the sector, alongside visiting speakers from a wide set of organisations.
  • Guest lecturers embedded in practice.
  • Opportunities to explore theory and policy in practice via placement and volunteering opportunities.
