Course summary

Overview

Coventry University has been providing social work CPD (Continuous Professional Development) courses and modules to local employers for many years and has prominent links with nearby local authorities and voluntary sector organisations.

This Postgraduate Certificate course in Advanced Adult Social Work is designed for social workers who have completed social work pre-registration training and are in employment to enhance your career prospects via gaining a Postgraduate level qualification. Opportunities may also be available within the faculty to progress your studies beyond the Postgraduate Certificate to a full master’s degree.

Course information

This course aims to enable you as a social worker to develop your career from early social work practice through to teaching, mentoring and assessing others.

This course has been designed to enable you to develop your practice, extend your range of skills, enhance your critical reflective skills and thus improve service delivery.

It is offered via a blended learning approach and is intended to be a key vehicle for social workers to gain an academic award at the same time as meeting your CPD, which is required by the current regulator.

The curriculum for the course allows for you to meet the Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS) stage 1 requirements where you will begin to form some knowledge of the role of teaching and mentoring others as you develop your social work career in more senior positions.

Career prospects

All students on the course will already be in employment as qualified social workers. However, the course embeds enhanced employability through a variety of initiatives such as the further development of transferable skills (e.g., communication and assessment skills, leadership and mentoring skills).

These skills develop the qualities needed for employment in circumstances requiring sound judgement, personal responsibility and initiative in complex and unpredictable professional environments.

You will also have access to Careers, and the Employability Support Team and can be supported with writing CVs, job applications, etc. Evidence indicates that students often go on to become supervisors and first line managers of social work teams having completed similar courses.
