What is Social Care?

Social care workers plan and provide professional, individual or group care to clients with personal and social needs. Client groups are varied and include children and adolescents in residential care; young people in detention schools; people with intellectual or physical disabilities; people who are homeless; people with alcohol/drug dependency; families in the community; or older people. Social care workers strive to support, protect, guide and advocate on behalf of clients. Social care work is based on interpersonal relationships which require empathy, strong communication skills, self awareness and an ability to use critical reflection. Teamwork and interdisciplinary work are also important.

Career Opportunities

Social care involves working with marginalised or disadvantaged people in a caring, compassionate and non- judgemental way. Graduates may work with children and adolescents in residential child care, people with intellectual disabilities, people accessing homeless services, people with alcohol/drug dependency, families in the community, the aged, asylum seekers/refugees and other marginalised groups.

What other options do I have after completion?

Graduates of this Level 8 programme may be eligible to progress to Masters Degrees (Level 9) in a wide range of disciplines across the Social Sciences, e.g. MA in Child, Family and Community Studies; Masters in Social Work; MA in Criminology.
