In your second year, you will continue to extend and refine your understanding of the law and social work theories and methods of intervention. You will also undertake a second practice placement and complete a dissertation.

In the final year you will focus on employability and transition into qualified practice, preparing you for future career opportunities. The vast majority of  Social Work  students from  Leeds Beckett University  successfully gain employment in a range of social care organisations, and some have accessed traineeships during the course.
