Achieve provisional registration at the level of a beginning practitioner. This is the first step to becoming a fully registered social worker after completing two years of supervised practice.

Alongside the academic component, field placement is a significant element in this programme which will enable you to get first-hand experience through voluntary work and supervised placements in a social service agency. 

You will also develop a range of flexible skills and professional attributes which will position you to be responsive to and to work collaboratively within the increasingly complex and interdisciplinary social service and health communities. 

The skills you can during this degree are also applicable across a wide range of roles.
