You'll need a professional social work qualification.

Applicants must be a registered social worker with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). You will also be required to demonstrate in your application that you have access to appropriate learning opportunities through your practice settings and that your employer will allow you to use your work in these setting as learning opportunities for the modules on the course. Please note that some Advanced Social Work Practice modules will require you to have an ascertained amount of post qualification experience and / or prerequisite modules that must be completed before you are eligible to enrol. You may also be asked to complete a written task as part of the entry process for certain modules.
A variety of assessment methods are used including essays; research and policy reviews; case study analysis; practice setting analysis; group and individual presentations; observations of practice; and a dissertation. There is a strong focus on helping you to develop your practice as part of your academic achievement, and the course will require you to explore and reflect on your practice as part of the assessment process. As well as formal (graded) assessments you will undertake formative (developmental, ungraded) assessments for which academic staff will provide informal feedback on your progress and development.
The modules you complete will depend on the current stage of your social work career. Visit www.ntu.ac.uk/aswp for more information on the modules you may study.
