To register as a social worker, you will need a qualification that is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). This Masters is in the process of being approved by the HCPC and endorsed by the College of Social Work so you can be sure that successful completion of the course will mean that you meet professional standards of proficiency.
Our course combines both practice and theory. We organise two main placements for you, the first of 70 days and the second of 100 days. There is in-depth preparation before the placements and you will be assigned a practice educator on placement who will provide on-going supervision as you work with people with a range of needs including those who are experiencing crisis or social exclusion.
Theory-based taught modules include ‘The Social Work Context’, ‘Theories and Models for Social Work Practice’ and ‘Critical Perspectives in Social Work Practice’. The Masters dissertation is an excellent opportunity to explore a specific issue in social work.
The University of Sunderland has been offering professional qualifications in social work since 1997 and we have built up strong relationships with employers, service users and carers. These relationships are an essential foundation for our rigorous training in how to make a difference to people’s lives through professional social work.
This course is available on a full-time (2 years) and part-time (4 years) basis.
We require applicants to hold at least a second class honours degree (usually a 2:1) or equivalent, however, other classifications may be considered. We require Mathematics and English Language Grade C or above or equivalent.It is essential you have experience (voluntary or paid) in a setting related to social care, eg volunteering at weekends, evenings, or vacations.
