This innovative part-time programme has been developed to meet the needs of qualified social workers who are required to continue with their professional development as part of their requirements for continued registration.

We have a range of pathways for development, in line with the Professional Capabilities Framework. Each pathway is individually designed to enhance individual learning taking into to account the learners: level of experience and skill, their work context and setting and the practice skills they wish to enhance. Individualised pathways are discussed with the learner and their employer and incorporates a professional development review process to enhance learning further.

The programme focuses on your professional development needs, allowing you to develop your learning in an area of specialist professional interest and provides the opportunity for you to source learning that meets both your immediate but also your future practice and career development needs. It is designed to facilitate flexible, intra-professional learning opportunities and can be studied at a pace that is suitable for you.
