Social Work

Few careers offer as much opportunity to support people as social work. Often, inequalities and injustices in society create difficulties for those involved with social services. The social work profession acknowledges these difficulties and endeavours to support people to manage their situations and effect positive change. This social work degree is based on the All Wales Assessment Framework for Social Work, which includes the National Occupational Standards for Social Work, and the Care Council for Wales Code of Professional Practice for Social Care Workers. This means you will graduate with the professional qualification required to register as a social worker. If you apply through UCAS, you may be eligible for a bursary from the Care Council for Wales (subject to their conditions). The social work course consists of academic and practice-based elements. Half your time will involve practice learning opportunities in voluntary and third sectors. This will help consolidate your knowledge and skills, preparing you for practice. Over the three years, you will experience a diverse range of teaching methods. You will also benefit from the real-life experiences of the Service User and Carer Group representatives, who contribute to the social work course. Evaluations of this social work course by students, external examiners, local authority partners and other stakeholders have all been positive.
