Advanced Social Work

Course Description

This programme is primarily for social workers who have been working as qualified practitioners for at least a year. Modules are also open to other professionals who are engaged in complex work in related areas, for example health visitors, nurses, police officers, people working in therapeutic roles and those who have responsibility for commissioning services.

The programme will support you to develop skills in critical analysis and reflection on your practice, to engage with current knowledge and to use knowledge and theory to inform your judgments, decision making and practice more widely. You can take a single module or study a number of modules over a maximum of five years and accumulate academic credits which can lead to a Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma or MA.

The programme is delivered using a blend of onsite teaching and learning supported by a virtual learning environment. You will carry out work relating directly to your current or recent practice, developing analytical and reflexive skills. There is an emphasis throughout the programme on developing skills in engaging with theory and knowledge to inform practice.

Workshops are timetabled to be accessible for students who are travelling to Lancaster from other parts of the UK.
