The course is grounded in practice, drawing on a range of relevant academic disciplines and providing inter-agency, inter-professional and international perspectives. While the primary aim of the curriculum is to develop professional competence, the course aims to place this understanding in a wider social and political context.
The core course themes are law, social justice and social policy, safeguarding vulnerable people, research, assessment, planning and intervention, social work practice with children and adults, applied psychology, sociology, ethics and philosophy, diversity, theory and methodology, skills development and critical reflection.
In year one and two you will study these core themes and then in years two and three you will start putting them into practice in placements with a range of different social work providers. In year three you will also study the organisational context of social work and international perspectives and you will undertake an independent research project.HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?
Our course is taught using lectures, workshops, seminars, group work, student presentations, skills workshops, guest speakers, one to one and professional development group tutorials. In addition to this you will also undertake study skills days and two practice placements and will be assigned a personal tutor who will review and discuss your progress with you and will be available for advice.HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?
