The programme offers successful graduates eligibility for professional registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) the regulatory body for social work (it took over this role from the General Social Care Council in July 2012). The course provides the national required standard in knowledge and skills needed by professional social workers.
A (2.1) Honours degree in a relevant subject are required as well as maths and English GCSE Grade C or above (or its equivalent: this is a national requirement for all social work qualifying programmes). It is also expected that applicants have at least 6 months full time relevant experience in social care/social work (or its equivalent part time). This need not be paid work but could be voluntary work or unpaid work caring for a relative with a disability. Applicants with a 2.2 Honours degree may be considered in circumstances where they have a sustained period of relevant experience and/or have work experience at a senior (management) level. Candidates already holding a Masters qualification may also be considered.
Assessment is primarily by coursework for taught modules, assessed practice during placements, and a dissertation.
