Advanced Social Work
The course is attuned to the vision of the professional capabilities framework for social workers, which anticipates that experienced social workers may pursue multiple routes to progression.

A 1st or 2nd Class Honours degree (BA(Hons)/BSc(Hons)) or postgraduate diploma in a relevant subject to the course and a relevant professional qualification; or a professional qualification in social work and substantial current or recent experience in a relevant setting for the course. Students whose 1st language is not English should have an IELTS score of 7.0.
Modules include: Bringing theory and research into practice; attachment, development and transitions; adulthood, development and transitions; frameworks for effective safeguarding practice with children and families; frameworks for effective safeguarding practice with adults; practice education stage 1; practice education stage 2.
Assessment is based on presentations, critical reviews, posters, portfolio of practice, assessed practice, projects and a capstone project.
