Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

This course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council.
This single honours degree offers a broad but focused approach,
embracing the social sciences, ethics and the law as they relate to
social work theory and practice. You will explore social issues such as diversity, rights, justice and
economic wellbeing.

You’ll learn to undertake effective assessments,
planning, interventions and reviews, working in a confidential and
non-discriminatory manner with individuals, families and communities.
You’ll develop skills for promoting independence, providing support,
and preventing harm, neglect and abuse. You’ll also develop transferable
skills such as teamwork, record keeping, communication and reflective
practice. The course includes 170 days of placement in at least two
settings. Keele is one of four Social Work Teaching Partnerships in
England which provide an enriched practice experience.

Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. Your Social Work degree from Keele will enable you to be eligible
to register as a social worker with the Health and Care Professions
Council, which will enable you to practice as a social worker in England
in the voluntary and statutory sector. The degree will also open up
a range of directly related careers in contexts, some of which may
require additional training, such as health, charities, education, local
government, probation and the prison service. Other less directly related
options include working as a youth worker, careers adviser, community
development worker or counsellor.
