Social work is a challenging and rewarding career. You will work alongside some of the most vulnerable people in society, working towards positive change with individuals, families and groups.
The work is incredibly varied with possibilities to specialise, for example in work with children or young people, adults with disabilities or mental health needs.
Social workers often spend their time with people – be it in hospitals, people's homes, schools or in the community.
A patient, non-judgemental approach is needed, with the ability to communicate effectively with a host of different people.
The Social Work MA at LSBU is a well-established course, running for over 30 years. Our graduates are eligible to apply to register as Social Workers with Social Work England, and have gone on to work in an exciting range of settings, from local authorities to setting up their own businesses.
