Social work is about empowering children, families and adults. It’s a complex job that demands a lot of soft skills, such as communication and partnership working.
This challenging yet rewarding career will often bring you into the lives of some of the most disadvantaged and marginalised communities. As a student, you’ll learn how to assess people’s circumstances and needs; measure risk; and set up activities with individuals, families, groups and communities. Working alongside other care professionals, you’ll plan, provide, review and evaluate services and interventions. You’ll become skilled in problem-solving and communication, and gain a thorough understanding of your legal powers and duties.
