The Social Work programme at Anglia Ruskin University has been designed for graduates with at least six months’ relevant work experience, who want to qualify as professional social workers.
An intensive orientation programme at the start of the course will develop your practical skills ready for your first placement, and will introduce you to theories and approaches within social work.
Your typical weekly pattern will then become one day of lectures and training on campus, with the rest of the week being either independent study or supported placement.
You’ll spend 70 days on practice placement in year 1 and 100 days in year 2. These practice placements will be in contrasting settings, one of which will involve statutory intervention and will include one placement in children’s services and one in adults. It’s likely that you’ll have to travel as part of your placement, so you’ll need your own transport to visit service users in the community, where public transport may not be available.
You could build a career in the various branches of professional social work, including children’s services, adult services, mental health services, youth offending, residential social care and providing advocacy and support for vulnerable groups.
