  • Objectives
    Social workers usually become involved in people's lives at moments of stress and difficulty. In one way or another, their task is to help solve problems and bring about change. In seeking to do this they have the power to be of great help but also to cause harm. Examples of when things go wrong in social work are very well known, but much more often things go well. This programme aims to help you develop the knowledge, understanding and practical skills to work with service users, and others, so that things do go well.

  • Course description

    The School of Health and Social Care is at the forefront of interprofessional education and training, and social work students undertake modules with students from different health professions at all three levels of the programme.

    All modules are compulsory at Levels one and two. In their final year, students complete a dissertation and an optional module, as well as an interprofessional module and practice placement. All teaching is planned for its contribution to developing skilled social workers.

    The programme has been developed to accommodate and include the interests of students of widely differing background and experience.

    The programme aims to:

    * Listen to, respect and value service users and promote the expertise they bring to the development of both the programme and services
    * Prepare students to understand the contemporary policy and legal context and help them adhere to the code of conduct for social workers
    * Enable students to integrate communication, negotiation, advocacy, assessment, intervention for change and evaluation skills in order to achieve best practice
    * Develop research aware practitioners who are able to access a range of information and who are able to critically evaluate the evidence base of their practice and services provided
    * Enable students to analyse the contested nature of social work and to be able to contribute to the development of social work
    * Develop critically reflective, competent and professional social workers who are able to engage and work creatively and constructively with a diverse range of service users, other professionals and organisations
    * Enable students to work in multi-disciplinary settings and manage the complexities of risk

    The programme has a module structure. All modules are compulsory at Level one and two. There are practice modules at all three levels. Level three includes a dissertation and a module from a list of options.
