You will be introduced to a variety of theoretical concepts that attempt to explain the various control mechanisms used to reduce and prevent crime, anti social behaviour, and other aspects of social deviance. You will learn to understand the intricacies of the criminal justice system and discover how different agencies such as the police; probation service; courts; and prisons interact.

Contemporary issues relating to child protection and youth offending in England and Wales will feature and you will develop an understanding of the range of problems in respect of child protection including situations leading to failure in multi agency approaches, child safety and protection strategies.

There will be debates around the concepts of the ‘troubled and troublesome youth’ and you will evaluate, describe and discuss theories of why young people offend. The course looks in detail at patterns of youth crime and victimisation including looking at children as both victims and perpetrators of crime and considers the many perspectives put forward to explain youth offending.

You will develop advanced analytical skills that will enable you to critically evaluate a wide range of materials including theories, policies, strategies, and operational plans.
