Course Information

Our Social Care and Community Practice degree is offered as a three year course leading to the award of BA (Hons). The degree is designed using real-world material that equips you for employment either within Social Care or working with specific communities.

You will be taught by academics from a range of backgrounds and work-based experiences. The core concepts that are covered in the degree are Human Rights and Social Justice, respecting diversity and the key skills required to work with a range of Service Users. You will benefit from a short shadow placement in your first year followed by an extended work based placement and reflective experience in the second year of the course.

In your third year of study you will have a short shadow placement as part of the housing module which will enable you to gain an additional professional certificate from the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) upon completion.

By the final year you will be equipped with the skills to work in a variety of Social Care and Community settings, enabling you to be an effective Changemaker, having a truly positive social impact on individuals and communities. You will have explored, understood and analysed specific service user groups and you will have an assured grasp of the link between theory and practice.
