Our MA Social Work course will help you become a highly effective social worker through a combination of teaching and practice placements. Our course meets the requirements of the Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) for social work practice in England, the Knowledge and Skills Statements for children, adult and mental health social workers, and the regulatory requirements of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). You will be eligible to apply to register as a qualified social worker with the HCPC upon completion of the course. You will benefit from particularly high quality placements and greater input from practising social workers through our membership of the Greater Manchester Social Work Academy, a government-sponsored Teaching Partnership that ensures close links between local employers and universities across Greater Manchester. Both placements and taught elements will help you learn how to work with a variety of user groups in a range of settings.
