Refine your expertise and take your career in social work to the next level.
You will be able to undertake modules from across our wide range of postgraduate health and social care courses, allowing you to align your studies with your interests and ambitions. You might want to move into management and take on further responsibilities in the world of social care, supporting and safeguarding adults, young people and children. Alternatively, you might want to specialise by working in the field of substance abuse, for example.
You will learn from an experienced teaching team of qualified practitioners from across the health and social care professions, including social work and adult and mental health nursing. We also invite senior specialist practitioners from local authorities to deliver lectures that provide the latest knowledge and real-world insights from their field.
You can select modules from across our wide range of postgraduate health and social care courses. Modules are delivered in six full-day workshops across the year, meaning your course can fit around your job.
You'll take part in interactive workshops and discussion groups, deliver group projects and even experience simulated practice sessions, to develop your own unique perspectives on current approaches to social care.
Learning alongside students from a variety of health and social care roles provides an opportunity to learn best practice, share experiences, and challenge people's actions and perceptions. This could include colleagues who are in nursing and mental health roles, giving you a broader, more critical view on the topics you are both working with and studying.
With some social care learning and experience already under your belt, this course provides a further step along your career path. Your qualification could help you gain a promotion, or you may decide to specialise in a certain area, such as providing social care in hospitals, working with vulnerable young people, older people, those with disabilities, or supporting people with mental health issues.
