    Programme Description

    Courses in Applied Social Studies prepare students for a profession of care, protection, welfare and advocacy for the most deprived and vulnerable members of society. Social Care involves working with children, adolescents, families and the elderly who may need professional help in order to function at the optimum level emotionally, intellectually and socially.

    A Social Care qualification is distinct from a qualification in Social Work in that Social Carers are the professionals who essentially provide care to the service user whereas social workers may be more adversarial or representative of service user's needs and concerns.

    Social Care is carried out in residential centres, day centres, and in the community. The qualified carer has identified service users' needs and learned to use relevant knowledge, skills and techniques that allow for a more effective and expanded understanding of the relationship between the service user, the family, society and the Social Care worker.
