Course summary

Would you like to make a real difference to the lives of individuals, families and communities? Would you like to prevent harm, neglect and abuse? The course has a long standing history of delivering social work training going back to the late 1980’s. We have a small and friendly team with a greatwealth of experience covering a range of areas of expertise. We have small teaching groups and offer a high level of tutorial and academic support to students.Students also benefit from regular sessions presented by service user and carer groups. Service user and carer input to the programme is integral to its design and delivery for which it has been commended.Current social work practitioners assist in the delivery of modules by virtue of the well-established relationship between the college and social work agencies.Students complete placements within social work settings of 70 days in year 2 and 100 days in year 3. The majority of placements are in Worcestershireand will often require students to be able to travel to and whilst on placement.The course is validated by Birmingham City University (BCU). On completing the programme, students receive their degree from BCU and are eligible to apply to register as a social worker. The course is subject to Social Work England reapproval during 21/22.The course is also run in accordance with the West Midlands Social Work Teaching Partnership, an accredited social work teaching partnership funded by the Department for Education to strengthen the quality of education and training for social work students and practitioners across the West Midlands. The Partnership is led by Principal Social Workers, Workforce Development Leads and Senior Academics across Children's and Adult Services. As a result the partnership aims to raise the standard and consistency for entrants onto social work programmes and strengthen the links between academia and practice to support the development of research. It also aims to enhance the pre- and post-qualifying social work curriculum to reflect contemporary research and practice and ensure students undertake high quality statutory placement and ASYE programmes. These aims help to develop the students’ knowledge, skills and experience to practice as Newly Qualified Social Workers.You will be taught by experienced and enthusiastic staff, most of them qualified and registered social workers. All our staff maintain active links with partner agencies and practitioners.The course is supported by online materials via our Virtual Learning Environment and may be supplemented by online delivery.
