The degree is based on the new curriculum for Social Work and allows you to gain a broad base in the key issues related to social work, such as the values and ethics that underpin social work, how social policies are formulated and put into practice, and the role of the law in social work. There are also modules that focus on specific areas of social work with children and families, with adult service users and community care. The curriculum is based on the new Professional Capabilities Framework. Social Work is an area where it is important to consider a wide range of views and learn from others’ expertise. Service users and carers deliver sessions in modules highlighting their experiences of receiving social care services. Every year, a number of external public speakers visit the University to talk about contemporary issues and debates. Social Work runs at the University of Kent’s Medway campus and benefits from the excellent new facilities on site. You are taught by lecturers with diverse social work practice experience who are active in research and scholarship, and the student body is a cosmopolitan mix of mature and younger students, from different ethnic backgrounds and nationalities. Home/EU students may be eligible to apply for a Department of Health bursary for their 2nd/3rd years of study. We are Kent Social Work. Your career starts here. This programme is regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
