This is a classroom-based course incorporating work placements.

Where will it take me?

This qualification leads to employment as a Qualified Social Worker following successful registration onto the Social Work England register. As it is a generic qualification, you would be able to apply for posts within both the Children and Families or Adult Community Care sectors in a range of statutory, voluntary and private agencies. Students receiving an award other than the BA (Hons) Social Work (i.e. those exiting the programme early at Levels 4 or 5, and receiving the Certificate or Diploma of Higher Education, Social Studies) will not be eligible to apply for registration onto the Social Work England register. This degree is also excellent preparation for postgraduate study.

Course Assessment Method

Assessment methods for this degree are varied and will include essays, reports, presentations, simulated role plays, panels and exams (in law only). Many assessments are designed to reflect specific elements of Social Work practice where the assessments will involve social work practitioners and service users, as well as academic staff.

The teaching year begins in September and ends in June. A typical student registered in full-time attendance mode will study the equivalent of 120 credits per academic year and will attend College for four days per week. Students will gain relevant placement experience and be able to commit to self-study alongside the programme.

All of our teaching staff are experienced professionals in the field of Social Work. All students are allocated a personal tutor who will be your first point of communication should you have any queries or concerns. Regular 1:1 sessions will take place within the classroom where there will be the opportunity to discuss your course and progress.

In addition to the teaching team there is a Service User and Carer Co-ordinator for support in all aspects of the programme and a Practice Learning Team who find, develop and support practice learning placements. Administration is supported by the Quality and Standards team and the Social Work Administrator.
