Oxford Brookes University
You must have a good honours degree (2:1 or above for the MA; 2:2 or above for the PGDip), or a professional qualification equivalent to an undergraduate degree, normally in a cognate area AND have GCSE Maths and English or equivalent at least to grade C or above, and basic IT skills with reliable access to the internet, preferably through a broadband connection. Additionally you should have experience of paid or voluntary work with vulnerable people in the UK. This experience should be sufficient to enable you to clearly demonstrate your commitment and motivation, and your understanding of the knowledge, skills and values of social work. This would typically be the equivalent of one year's full-time experience of social care or health care-related practice in either the statutory or the voluntary sector in the UK. Caring in a personal capacity may in some instances be acceptable as relevant experience. Successful applicants must submit where possible, a recent practice reference from a social care employer in the UK who can verify that they have met the PCF levels of capability required at the point of entry to qualifying social work programmes.
Core modules include: Skill development and professional communication; the policy and law context of social care; social work practice 1; social work theory, assessment and evidence-informed intervention with adults; supporting children and families: building the evidence; social work practice 2; social work theory, assessment and evidence-informed intervention with children and families. MA students will be required to undertake: Applied research methods; dissertation.
Modules are assessed in a variety of ways, including written assignments, class tests, portfolios, presentations and a dissertation.
