The Social Work (Qualifying) program from Excelsia College meets the Australian Association of Social Workers Practice Standards and is an entry qualification into the social work profession. Social work is an academic practice-based profession that promotes social justice, inclusion and wellbeing. 


Key Features

  • The Social Work (Qualifying) program from Excelsia College aims to produce graduates who are professionally competent, aware of socio-political realities in the human services and committed to social change through supporting and promoting the strengths of disadvantaged and vulnerable populations.
  • The focus is on face-to-face small classes and intensive interaction with fellow students and experienced social work academics. As social work engages with a changing world where social media, online material and interactivity are prevalent student learning will also include blended learning technologies.

The learning will be delivered through: workshops; case studies; in-class exercises; experiential learning strategies; flipped classrooms; social work laboratory; written reports; oral presentations; blogs; essays; and research reports. Finally, students will explore social work practice through field education practicums.
