Course summary

If you’re a professional working in the fields of social work and social care then our Professional Development and Practice course offers you the ideal opportunity to enhance your knowledge and advance your career.

This course is especially suited for social work and social care practitioners working in child, adult and mental health care. It’s also a great development opportunity for anyone working in areas such as youth offending services (YOS), homeless services, domestic violence, learning disabilities and substance misuse.

If you’re a social worker, this course will provide evidence of your learning in order to meet The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) requirements for renewing your registration.

We also recommend this course as a valuable continuing professional development (CPD) opportunity for non-social work qualified staff who are looking to advance their careers.

Why study with us

  • On this course you’ll be encouraged to critically reflect on and review your professional development with a view to enhancing your performance and service delivery.
  • We’ll provide you with learning opportunities to explore complex challenges, current issues and new evidence-based practice research
