This interdisciplinary core textbook looks at learning and development from birth to 19 years providing, an accessible introduction to the common areas of study across the many roles supporting learning and development in the young people's workforce. There is coverage of common themes and issues, and theory is closely integrated with practice throughout.

Chapters cover:

- physical development

- cognitive development

- social and emotional development

- professionalism

- leadership

- quality and effectiveness

- working with families

- safeguarding and promoting well-being

- transitions

- equality and inclusion

Reflection points, workplace activities and professional development planners are all included and these challenge readers and students to critically engage with theory in their own practice. The book focuses on the key areas of knowledge that all those working with children are required to study, and places them firmly in the context of working together to support children and young people.
