Program Overview

This course is designed for people who want to become a Registered Social Worker and be part of a profession which engages with people who are in need of support or protection. The individuals, families and communities we work with include many who experience significant levels of social disadvantage and/or discrimination.

Typically you will want ‘to make a difference’ to help enhance people’s lives at a personal and structural level and the course enables you to develop the knowledge and skills needed to work with some of the most vulnerable people in society. You will also be encouraged and enabled to explore your own values and how you can practice in an anti-oppressive and anti-discriminatory manner.

You will learn from expert teaching staff, researchers, practitioners from the field, carers and people with experience of social work. Through lectures, group work, simulation and skills workshops you will study the theory and practice of social work, how to work with children, adults and families, as well as legal and policy frameworks.

Placement learning model: there are placement module leaders who ensure that the learning on placement is fully integrated into the curriculum and run a series of support workshops to facilitate this transferable learning. You will be prepared by the 170 days of practice which takes place over two placements.

Our excellent facilities on campus (catering, libraries and well equipped social learning spaces) will ensure your learning is enjoyable. We are noted for our friendly and approachable staff, who are keen to help you as you take up your chosen career in social work

This course will prepare you for social work practice and make you eligible to apply for registration as a professional Social Worker which is mandatory for practice within the UK.

At the point of graduation you will have met the requirements of the Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) for qualifying social work programmes and you will also have a broad academic and practice based understanding of social work through placement experiences, supported by wide reading and research.
