About this course

Qualify as a social worker on LJMU's Social Work MA which is recognised by the Health and Care Professions Council and caters for all service users in many settings.

  • Develop the necessary knowledge and skills to practice as a qualified social worker in a range of settings
  • Learn from experienced social work practitioners
  • Benefit from two key work placements
  • Enjoy a wide range of teaching and assessment techniques

Social Work education at Liverpool John Moores University is provided in collaboration with the Cheshire and Merseyside Social Work Teaching Partnership. Our teaching partnership comprises four universities, eight Local Authorities, two Community NHS Trusts and one Voluntary Sector Organisation covering Greater Merseyside, Cheshire West and Chester, and West Lancashire.  

The Partnership provides well-designed, challenging and sustainable social work education at initial and post-qualifying levels. As Practice education is provided in collaboration with the partnership, most placements will be drawn from the Partnership’s geographical footprint.

Our programme will give you the skills, confidence and ability to: work with people in a caring and professional manner, assess situations for change, write concise and coherent reports and make convincing spoken and written presentations of ideas. You will summarise and present data, work individually and as part of a team and produce solutions to problems.

The course is geared to training and supporting knowledgeable and skilled practitioners, who are aware of the importance of service users, and to giving them a genuine voice and choice in the services available to them. Underpinning all aspects of the training is a commitment to ethical and anti-oppressive values.
