Social work is a profession that has its history rooted in the principles of equality and social justice.
This Social Work (Hons) degree from London Metropolitan University is informed by research, evidence, current police and practice. You’ll learn in a structured and dynamic environment with considerable interaction with experienced academic staff, social care service users, as well as key partners and practitioners. Your learning will be enriched by fellow students from within health and social care sector who’ll share their experience, cultivating collaborative practice for providing service user-centred health and social care.
The Social Work BSc (Hons) is a professionally accredited course that is designed to provide the knowledge, skills and values required to begin a career as a social worker. Successful completion of the course will enable you to register with Social Work England. It’s been designed specifically to give you the capabilities and skills needed to qualify and practise as a social worker.
We’ve integrated the nine key frameworks for social workers into our modules, including professionalism, values and ethics, diversity, rights, knowledge, judgement, critical reflection and analysis, context and origins, and professional leadership. Knowledge, skills and values in these core areas will help you to become a reflective, resilient and effective social work practitioner.
During your three years of study towards the Social Work BSc, you’ll complete at least one placement providing you with experience of statutory social work tasks that involve legal interventions into care and provision of services to contrasting service user groups.
