This innovative and challenging three-year programme has been validated by the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council). Those who successfully complete the programme will be eligible to apply to register as a qualified social worker with the HCPC. The programme enjoys strong relationships with service users and carers and a range of statutory and voluntary agencies. You will experience high-quality placements which offer excellent learning opportunities and support in practice. You will also have the unique opportunity to apply for a placement in the University’s own voluntary social work agency, the Family Assessment and Support Unit (FASU), which was awarded one of the Queen’s Anniversary Prizes for Higher and Further Education for its innovations in practice learning.
