This Masters is for registered Social Workers to continue their professional development. Take opportunities for critical reflection and research on a programme tailored to your personal and practice requirements.
Enhance your knowledge, skills and abilities as a social worker through a range of modules tailored to your professional requirements.
You’ll be taught by registered social workers, who are experts in their field and passionate about your ability to succeed on the programme. We’ll support you to develop your practice and your commitment to inclusion and independence for people experiencing social work.
Your learning will draw upon your practice experiences and explore relationships between theory, practice, professionalism, and the use of self.
You’ll learn from contributions from people with lived experience of social work (including carers) and demonstrate considerations for wider, socio-political influences.
Teaching includes online lectures and workshops with taught sessions and tutorials which are mainly facilitated online, as well as optional face-to-face peer workshops. The face-to-face workshops are offered in Cambridge and Chelmsford.
