About

The Social Work programme offered by the University of Chester requires a particular combination of intellectual ability, analytical skills, emotional resilience, empathy and the ability to use role-based authority when needed.

Overview

Social workers work closely with other organisations to support and protect children and adults from harm, and to effect personal and social change. Studying Social Work at the University of Chester will offer you an opportunity to develop the skills needed to perform as a social work practitioner in today’s challenging and unpredictable landscape.

Career Prospects

Students are taught in small groups in supportive and encouraging environments, and service users and carers are involved throughout the course.

Social Work at Warrington Campus has excellent links with Local Authorities and with many private, voluntary and independent agencies, who provide opportunities for supportive learning in practice placements.

Teaching staff are qualified and registered social workers, and are able to use their research and practice experience to enhance teaching sessions.

We have an excellent relationship with local employers who frequently comment on how impressed they are with our Social Work students. A high percentage of Social Work students from the University of Chester gain employment with local authorities upon completion of the course and registration with HCPC.
