This part-time, flexible course is for post-qualifying Social Work professional study. The MSc programme accommodates a range of modules to allow students to build credit towards either a “generic” Masters qualification (MSc in Applied Professional Studies) or a range of specialist qualifications by following prescribed pathways of study.
A flexible programme of study recognised by the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) as an appropriate qualification for registered managers.
The programme is appropriate for frontline managers and supervisors working in diverse roles and specialisms. Participants on the course may come from a health, social work, education, occupational therapy or housing background and may be working in residential, day services or fieldwork settings.
The modules involve direct teaching days which include group discussions and activities; structured learning sessions for independent study and action learning sets. There are extensive online learning materials to complement the teaching sessions and to support collaborative learning.
Our qualifications are recognised and accredited by organisations such as Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC). By mainlining strong links with key stakeholders we ensure that our programmes anticipate learning needs in the workforce and that we are at the forefront of contemporary practice and thinking.
