Advanced Social Work with Children and Families

This is a part-time modular programme providing continuing professional education for registered social workers who are currently working with children and young people, their families and carers in the UK. The programme leads to one of three awards; you can enter at MSc, Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma level. Alternatively, you are welcome simply to take any of our units on a credit-only basis. The programme is normally accessed by qualified social workers as part of their employment with local authorities or voluntary/independent sector organisations in the south west of England. However, we also welcome applications from appropriately qualified and experienced practitioners/managers working elsewhere in the UK. It is managed in partnership with local employers.

Course modules

Master's students must take all four core units and two of the optional units. Successful completion of the dissertation leads to the full master's award (a total of 180 credit points). You will undertake research methods training before accessing the dissertation unit.
