Course Summary

Overview

Our full-time social work course combines in-depth professional training and tuition with high-quality practice placements. Graduate and you’ll be eligible to register as a qualified social worker.

We’ve designed our course for graduates with at least six months’ relevant work experience, who want to qualify as professional social workers.

An intensive orientation programme at the start of the course will develop your practical skills ready for your first placement and will introduce you to theories and approaches within social work.

Your typical weekly pattern will then become one day of lectures and training on campus, with the rest of the week being either independent study or supported placement.

Assessment

We’ll assess you for your master’s degree through academic assignments, practice debriefs and the portfolios you’ll build up, detailing your professional development.

Your final piece of work will be a Dissertation, which must be a substantial, research-based piece of work that demonstrates your knowledge, ideas and professional skills.

Careers

You could build a career in the various branches of professional social work, including children’s services, adult services, mental health services, youth offending, residential social care and providing advocacy and support for vulnerable groups.

Modules

An intensive practical skills based module which takes place for 3 days per week for the first 6 weeks of the course. Students will need to attend these day and pass the practical assessment in order to progress to the first placement.
