Social workers are professionally qualified staff who assess the needs of service users and provide care and support to those in need.
They work with individuals, families and organisations to provide a suitable package of care. Your education, training, and practical experience will help you to interpret the problems individuals face and support them in finding solutions.
You will need to have a high level of commitment, be quick thinking and provide a good level of judgement to succeed in this role as well as take on a lot of responsibility for the decisions you make.
"I look at situations in a different way and the course has made me want to become a social worker more than ever." - Charlotte Chambers, BA (Hons) Social Work student
