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.
The BSc Social Work (Hons) degree at Cardiff Metropolitan University also includes an understanding of the legislative provision of services and the importance of understanding social work within a Welsh, UK and International context.
On completion of the BSc (Hons) Social Work degree and all associated academic and practice based learning opportunities, graduates will be able to register as qualified Social Work practitioners and access a wide range of employment opportunities within social work in the statutory, independent and third sectors. Graduates can take up employment with people with social care needs and their carers who use a range of social work and social care services which address complex social issues and needs.
Graduates will also be required to pursue Continued Professional Education and Learning within their Social Work career, and may choose to pursue a postgraduate qualification, for example in teaching in further/higher education or a Masters or Doctorate in Social Work. There are also other graduate opportunities outside Social work.
