Course aim:
To investigate the origins of the British Welfare State with a view to evaluate how far the original concept has been sustained or rolled back in the 21st century in Britain.
Course description:
To provide an examination of the origins of the British Welfare State beginning with the Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834 and subsequent economic and social developments in the 19th and 20th centuries which resulted in the establishment of the Welfare State after 1945. Reviewing housing, health, welfare and educational provisions will provide a context to determine if the welfare state is being rolled back in the early 21st century.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. Explore how the less well off in British society were viewed and treated before the Welfare State was established
2. List the different welfare services which existed for the less well off between 1834 and 1945
3. Discuss the key economic, social and political developments which occurred between 1834 and 1945 which led to an establishment of a state system of welfare for all
4. Distinguish between developments in housing, health, education and welfare between 1834 and 1945 and how these relate to Beveridge's five giants.
5. Create a judgement on whether the original concept of the Welfare State has been sustained in the 21st century or has been rolled back to some extent
