Course summary

The BSc Social Work degree at Cardiff Met is based on the National Occupational Standards for social work practice (2011) and is delivered in partnership with local social work agencies and service user groups. It combines and integrates professional training in social work with academic study to degree level. Social Work involves a flexible approach to meeting the needs of individuals, groups or communities. This degree in social work is concerned with developing a range of competencies to meet the National Occupational Standard for Social Work. Student learning is informed by legislation, theory and research-informed evidence in relation to social work knowledge, skills and values and is related to experience gained through social work practice learning opportunities. This social work degree also includes an understanding of the legislative provision of services and the importance of understanding social work within a Welsh, UK and International context. The Code of Professional Practice for Social Care (2017) and equality and human rights issues will be integral to learning and practice, which you will be expected to comply with.
