Course content

This programme was developed in partnership with a range of key stakeholders, including social work service users and carers, and representatives from social work agencies. We offer an intensive programme of study that combines a level 7 academic award with a qualification in social work. It is studied over two years full-time.

You'll critically discuss how social work theory, core skills and key professional concepts facilitate understanding of individuals within the environment. By evaluating a comprehensive range of theories and evidence bases of social work practice, you'll demonstrate effective use of supervision whilst adopting and applying a critically reflective approach to practice. We'll show you how to articulate and justify your professional role confidently within a range of practice contexts, helping you make the transition from student to newly-qualified social worker.
