Advanced Social Work and Management

The course supports the development of experienced social workers who are in some form of leadership role; it seeks to consolidate learning in line with the 8th level of the college of social work's professional capabilities framework (PCF). At this stage, students are expected to be a specialist with some strategic influence. There is only one module on the course - the dissertation - and this must relate to management issues for students to be eligible for the award. In all other respects, it is identical to the standard masters. As a course of continuing professional development (CPD), the course is not accredited by a professional, statutory and regulatory body (PSRB). However, students must still be registered as a social worker with the health and care professions council (HCPC) to be accepted on to the programme.

Entry requirements

Applicants should normally have a 1st degree, or accredited prior learning (APL); a recognised social work qualification; registration with the health and care professions council (HCPC) as a social worker; a minimum of 15 hours per week dedicated to professional social work practice in a leadership role; the agreement of an employer to facilitate relevant experience and supervision. We recruit to this course through local authority secondments rather than through independent applications.
