Social Work BA(Hons): Partnerships with employers and practice sectors

How we work with our sector partners and employers

Both local employers and service users and carers make a crucial contribution to the design and management of the course. This keeps it relevant, up-to-date and closely in touch with changes in social work.

We have long-standing partnerships with a wide variety of practice settings in the statutory, voluntary and private sectors. Placements are available in field, residential, day care, hospital, prison and service user run settings. They cover all service user groups, including:

  • Children and families
  • People with disabilities;
  • People with learning disabilities;
  • Older people;
  • People with mental health problems:
  • People within criminal justice settings.

Please note that placements are arranged with our partner agencies, which are relatively close geographically to the University. The maximum travelling time to placements will not normally exceed two hours each way from the University.
