This course aims to enable you as a social worker to develop your career from early social work practice through to teaching, mentoring and assessing others.
It has been designed to enable you to develop your practice, extend your range of skills, enhance your critical reflective skills and thus improve service delivery.
It is offered via a blended learning approach and is intended to be a key vehicle for social workers to gain an academic award on successful completion while at the same time meeting your CPD, which is required by the current regulator.
The curriculum for the course aims to allow you to meet the Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS) stage 1 requirements where you should begin to form some knowledge of the role of teaching and mentoring others as you develop your social work career in more senior positions.
An additional module on this qualification route – “Advanced Critical Practice: Adult Social Work “ will focus on enhancing your knowledge in adult social work practice. All modules are mandatory.
The course is designed for social workers who have completed social work pre-registration training and are in employment and want to enhance their career prospects with a postgraduate level qualification upon successful completion. Opportunities may also be available within the faculty to progress your studies beyond the Postgraduate Certificate to a full master’s degree (subject to successfully completing the PG Cert, an application to a Master’s course and additional fees).
The provision of CPD has become part of a workstream within the recently formed West Midlands Teaching Partnership.
