This programme is designed to develop your professional skills and knowledge so that you may achieve a recognised HCPC professional social work qualification. The programme is grounded in practice so that you experience first-hand the contemporary challenges and rapidly changing patterns of social work provision. Programme detail People study social work because they want to make a difference. They care for people in need and are determined to try to give a better life to those experiencing abuse, neglect, ill health, poverty or disability. If you have a strong commitment to the empowerment of individuals and communities, and the contribution that social work can make to this through anti-discriminatory practice then this is the programme for you. Listening to and respecting the voices of the users of social work services and implementing the values of social work is central to what you will be taught. We offer a challenging but supportive learning environment, the programme is taught using a wide range of teaching and learning methods, and all tutors have experience with a range of service users and community groups. The programme is enhanced with small group tutorials and integrated with two placements in the work place. We benefit from a strong partnership with local social work programmes and Oxfordshire County Council, principally via our Oxford Practice Learning Centre. These well-established links enable us to provide high quality student placements. We ensure we actively involve service users and carers in many aspects of the programme.
