Course Summary

Our course is endorsed by the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC), which means you will be able to register as a qualified social worker the minute you graduate, explaining why 95% of our students are working or studying within six months of graduating. Social workers are capable of so much and helping so many. Their work touches upon areas ranging from child protection to fostering and adoption, through to youth justice and supporting adults with disabilities, to mental health and homelessness, and helping those with drug issues or alcohol dependency. You will gain lots of hands-on experience during your placements, operating in real-world settings.
