Program description

The Graduate Certificate in Advanced Social Work provides social workers with higher skills relevant to social work practice and social policy and addresses the complex and growing challenges faced by this sector.

If you want to have a more profound impact on the health and well-being of individuals and society, develop leadership skills and connections in the community and health and services sector and undertake a course suited to your area of interest or expertise, then this course is for you.

By successfully completing this course you may be eligible for credit toward the Master of Advanced Social Work.

If you’re not a qualified social worker, but you have an undergraduate degree in a field related to health and human services, you can study one of our Health and Human Services courses.

Course aims

This course is designed to prepare social workers for leadership and specialist roles in the health, mental health and human services sector. By undertaking this course, you will push the boundaries of knowledge, understand and benefit from evidence-informed practice and then respond to the problems that affect individuals, families, communities and organisations. You will develop a deep understanding of knowledge, policy and research as it relates your practice, while learning from leading academics who conduct evidence-based research in the fields of health, mental health, child and family welfare, ageing, social policy, policy evaluation and leadership.
