Course summary

Gain the professional knowledge and skills you need to qualify and practise as a registered social worker with the ability for leadership

Overview

This new course is designed for graduates who wish to qualify as a social worker within a two-year time frame.

The course is unique in that it has been developed alongside the MSc Physiotherapy and MSc Occupational Therapy programmes to prepare you to work effectively within the complex and rapidly evolving environment of health and social care. The Simulation and Clinical Skills Centre provides the facilities to develop your skills in realistic settings including the home environment. Being both intellectually challenging and practical, this programme will prepare you for the real world of social work within the areas of Children and Families, Criminal Justice and Adult social work. You’ll enter the workplace as a confident, competent and autonomous social worker, equipped to lead the delivery of personalised and responsive services, which place individuals and families at the centre of their care and support.

How you’ll be taught

This is a full-time course delivered over two years. The teaching will involve practitioners and the users of services alongside academic staff. The first two trimesters each year focus on theory, knowledge and skills development, and in the third trimester each year you’ll undertake a work placement in order to consolidate your learning and to integrate the theory with practice. You’ll otherwise learn by a variety of teaching methods including scenario-based learning, tutorials, seminars, simulation, group work and independent study.

Assessments

A variety of assessment approaches will be utilised relevant to the skills you’ll require in practice, including report-writing, oral presentations and some reflective essays.

Careers

The course enables you to provide leadership as a qualified social worker, ready to work in the local authority or third sector, within the areas of Children and Families, Criminal Justice and Adult Social Work.
