In order to meet our entry requirements for the programme, you will be required to declare any previous offences. If successful in the application process, you will need to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Scheme (DBS) check to ensure your suitability to work with vulnerable groups. You will also need to book an appointment with your GP to verify a health check questionnaire which we’ll ask you to complete. You will need to give us permission to contact your GP or other medical professional, if necessary, to confirm your suitability for social work training.

On successful completion of Year 1, you will be eligible to register as a social worker with the Health and Care Professions Council which regulates social workers in England – the Standards of Proficiency can be found here.

Please note, during peak times it may take us longer to respond to emails, so we ask that you read through the website thoroughly before emailing queries through to us.
