3 Year - Undergraduate Advanced Diploma
Graduate from Cambrian's 3-year Child and Youth Care advanced diploma program in just two years. Our nationally-accredited program offers a condensed delivery format and provides you with the knowledge and placement experiences you need to launch your career. Through theory and experiential lab courses, as well as two block fieldwork semesters, you'll gain the knowledge and skills necessary to work with children, adolescents, and their families who are experiencing social, emotional, behavioural, and mental health issues in a variety of settings. These settings include mental health, residential care, correctional, community, educational, and child welfare agencies/services. Courses emphasize the acquisition of evidence-based theories and interventions, ensuring you can effectively facilitate positive change for at risk children, youth, and their families. Shift work, which includes nights, days, afternoons, and weekends, is a reality in many child and youth care settings (e.g. residential care), and students are required to follow the work schedules and routines of their fieldwork placements.
For graduates of the new curriculum (OSS): Ontario Secondary School Diploma (30 credits) or equivalent or mature student status, including: Any grade 12 English (C) or (U) Recommended: Computer competency in relevant software
