Providing care and opportunity to the most vulnerable members of our society is a huge undertaking for those responsible. Social care workers must be determined, compassionate, empathetic, and well prepared in order to meet the demands ahead.

In times of economic difficulty, problems of social marginalisation and disadvantage inevitably become more widespread. Policymakers are often placed in the spotlight and their decisions debated and scrutinised, which is only fair.

Yet the people making a difference to the lives of the vulnerable groups in our society on a day-to-day basis are our social care practitioners and workers. Those working at the ground level are responsible for providing the therapeutic care, protection and support that will make an observable difference to the lives of those in need.

Which is precisely why having a professional qualification has become all but essential to anyone hoping to work in the area of social care.

Students on full-time Social Studies programmes will examine a wide and interesting range of subjects: social care practice, psychology, sociology, and creative studies, along with related topics such as law, group working, health studies and intercultural studies. Most programmes also provide work placements as a vital way for students to gain an invaluable chance to:

  • gain practical experience
  • use their own initiative
  • learn to recognise professional standards
  • develop an awareness of clients’ needs
  • build their own confidence and competence in the area

The achievements of our social care workers may not attract the media attention reserved for our policymakers, but effecting personal change brings its own unique rewards.
