Social Work

This course provides interprofessional learning, shared with other students in the faculty; focus on both multiprofessional and uniprofessional when in relation to a range of care settings. UWE has been providing social work education for well over 30 years. The programme aims to provide students with the knowledge, critical understanding, experience and skills to work creatively and constructively with a wide range of service users, carers, other professionals and organisations to enhance well-being. We seek to enable students to become socially, politically and self-aware practitioners, able to make independent critical judgements in complex situations. Students are taught by experienced and enthusiastic academic staff (most of whom are also qualified and registered social workers), by current social work practitioners, by people who have experience of social workers working with them, and by those who care for them. Lecturers have a wide range of specialist knowledge including social work with children and young people, disabled and older people, inter-professional working, psychosocial perspectives, and the sociology of social work. Tutors have a strong record of providing support to students to enable them to become thoughtful and confident practitioners.
