Social work and social care

Our social work and social care courses offer experienced and aspiring social workers a stimulating and supporting environment in which to develop their practice. Our courses provide top level skills in clinical, educational, managerial and leadership roles. We see high quality leadership as best rooted in social work's reflective practice traditions while responding to and shaping current changes in the profession.
