Our interesting, stimulating and progressive course is designed to encourage your learning and personal development, helping you explore your professional identity and resilience while recognising that people with lived experience of health and social care services are the experts in their own lives. We will equip you with the relevant skills, knowledge and abilities required to practice competently, sensitively, and ethically within the complexities of contemporary social work practice. Central to this is a commitment to developing your competence and confidence in anti-discriminatory, anti-racist, and anti-oppressive person-centered practice.
