Course summary

Social workers work with a wide cross section of society, which includes a significant proportion of some of the most disadvantaged and excluded people in our society. Do you think you have what it takes to help these people? Our social work course has been developed in partnership with a range of key stakeholders, including social work service users and carers, and representatives from social work agencies. You’ll develop the knowledge, skills and values required to qualify as a social worker and register with the Health and Care Professions Council, graduating with an understanding of the fast-changing world of social work.Completion of this degree makes you eligible to apply to the Health and Care Professions Council for registration as a social worker. You could enter a career in social work working with children and families, youth justice, older adults, mental health, community care, children and adults with disabilities, education welfare, and substance misuse. This may be in a variety of settings in the statutory sector or in a vast range of voluntary and independent agencies. Recent graduates have successfully gained employment in social work teams in a variety of settings such as parenting and family support teams, youth justice, community drug teams and community mental health teams. Some graduates returned to the School to undertake post qualifying courses for experienced practitioners and continue their academic study.
