Careers and vocational training in Social Work

From the beginning of the second year, students work with people in different communities, doing their practical work in the context of a range of government and Non-Profit Organization settings, such as schools, hospitals, development programmes, industry, prisons, rehabilitation and trauma centres.

To assist students to integrate their theoretical knowledge of assessment and intervention strategies, they receive supervision from a specialist in the field. The programme leads to a professional qualification and provides a solid foundation for all people-centred careers and social service professions.

The education and training provides knowledge for life and opportunities for lifelong learning. By the time of graduation, the student has relevant work and professional experience and is registered with a professional body to practice.
