Course summary

This structured programme of study will enable you, a qualified social worker, to maintain your continuing professional development (CPD) for professional registration with Social Work England. Social Workers are required to intervene in the lives of vulnerable people and people in crisis making decisions which impact directly on individuals, families and society. The emphasis in this course is on the application of skills (practical, critical and intellectual), knowledge and research to social work practice, with the aim of improving opportunity and outcomes for service users and communities. Modules are offered which are relevant at whatever stage of career you are at – from modules to support you at the outset of your social work career to modules which develop supervision and management skills. All modules have been developed in collaboration with regional stakeholders. You may enter the course as a sponsored student from your employer or maybe self-funding.


Entry requirements

The course and the modules constitute Continuing Professional Development for qualified social workers. You must, therefore, be undertaking primary social work tasks in your employment (or be eligible to do so in the case of newly qualified students). We positively welcome applications from students who may not meet the stated entry criteria but who can demonstrate their ability to successfully pursue a programme of study at postgraduate level. See ‘applicant profile’ section. We welcome candidates from professions other than social work and/or people with appropriate experience to undertake stand-alone modules to build or contribute to a CPD portfolio. In this case, you would not, however, register for the PgCert, PgDip or the MSc in Applied Social Work Practice.
