Study social work and social care

Our courses are designed and managed in consultation with employers, partner agencies and those accessing social work services. Recent changes in social work education and regulation have been incorporated into our courses, these include the Chief Social Workers' Knowledge and Skills Statements and revised Professional Standards for Social Workers set by Social Work England. Our two year social work masters is supported by the British Association of Social Workers' Professional Capabilities Framework, allowing you to join Social Work England's register of social workers.

You will learn from qualified social work and social care professionals, combining teaching with work in practice. Our adaptable courses will enable you to apply your learning directly to your practice.

You will gain first-hand experience of working with service users to develop the skills you need to become an established practitioner. Kingston is part of a social work teaching partnership with local authorities and voluntary agencies, offering plenty of opportunity to gain relevant experience. Our state-of-the-art Practice Learning Skills Lab provides opportunities to hone your skills through simulating home visits and recording interviews, reflecting your working environment.
