Course Summary

The Professional Social Work Practice PGDip supports the development of established social workers who have expertise in at least one area of practice. It seeks to consolidate learning in line with the seventh level of the College of Social Work's Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF). At this stage, you are expected to liaise with senior social workers on certain issues and be a reliable role model for the newly qualified. There is a choice as to which route to follow: practice, education, management or a combination of the three. Early in the course, you are advised to discuss with the course leader which modules you will study for and which route you will follow. As a course of continuing professional development (CPD), the Professional Social Work Practice PGDip is not accredited by a Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Body (PSRB). However, you must still be registered as a social worker with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) to be accepted on to the programme. The PGDip qualifies you to work as a professional social work educator, an advanced social work practitioner or a social work manager, depending on your chosen specialism.
