These new postgraduate degrees are aimed at qualified social workers practicing or wanting to specialise in social work. They are underpinned by the new Professional Capabilities Framework and by the following:
- Evidence informed research and practice and critical and reflective practice, linked to contemporary policy and legislative frameworks - Empowerment and anti-oppressive, practice, enhancing outcomes for users of services - Professional identity and leadership with an interdisciplinary focus and in a multi-professional, multi-agency context.
Whatever your sector or career stage, we believe the programmes' emphasis on evidence informed practice combined with a relationship based focus will be of great interest to social work practitioners.
Additionally, they offer significant career benefits as an increasing number of employers are requiring their social workers to complete a post-qualifying specialist award before progression from experienced social worker to advanced social worker level, or to management.
