The Degree in Social Work was introduced in 2004 to meet the requirements of the Northern Ireland Social Care Council, which, along with other Councils, agreed that all social work training would be offered at Honours degree level. One of the main features is the introduction of a pre-registration year. This means that when you complete the degree, you will then have to successfully undertake an assessed year in employment (AYE) before being eligible for full registration as a social worker with the Northern Ireland Social Care Council. Year one and Year two of this course will be taught at Belfast Met and Final year will be completed at Magee campus.
