  • Programme Description

    Programme Description

    These programmes have been designed to enable qualified social workers employed in social work practice to gain a post-qualifying award in social work at the higher specialist or advanced levels. The programme incorporates the specialist standards prescribed by the General Social Care Council under its post-qualifying framework for social work education and training. To undertake these programmes students must already be qualified in social work and be registered with the GSCC.

    Students who successfully complete 120 credits of study are awarded the postgraduate diploma. Those who complete an additional 60 credits are awarded the MA.

    These programmes have been planned through close consultation with stakeholders in the statutory, independent and voluntary sectors and with service users and carers.

    The programmes are flexible, enabling students to study on a part-time basis and integrate into work contemporary theoretical perspectives to develop their professional practice. There are two pathways: Social Work with Children and Families and Social Work Practice Education.

    Career options
    Graduates from this programme can pursue career progression within social work in the public, independent or voluntary sectors.
