The course is designed for students who want to enter professional social work, a profession which engages with people who experience levels of social disadvantage and/or discrimination.
Typically you will want ‘to make a difference’ to help enhance people’s lives at a personal and structural level; to counter discrimination and oppression. The course will equip you with the appropriate knowledge and skills, as well as encouraging and enabling you to explore the value base necessary for qualified social workers. It will also prepare you for 170 days of practice over two placements.
This course will prepare you for social work practice and make you eligible to apply for registration as a professional Social Worker which is mandatory for practice within the UK.
At the point of graduation you will have met the requirements of the Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) for qualifying social work programmes and you will also have a broad academic and practice based understanding of social work through placement experiences, supported by wide reading and research.
