Description Are you thinking about going into social work or social care? This certificate course is the ideal way to find out if it’s the right career for you. It will give you an insight into social work and social care in Scotland (and is also suitable if you live in the Republic of Ireland), starting with an up-to-date, authoritative overview of care services – with real-life case studies taking you deep into the experience of giving and receiving care. You’ll also develop your knowledge of the key roles in social work, and learn about the social work standards and codes of practice relevant to each UK nation state. You’ll explore ideas about what social work is – using case studies with children, older people, mental-health communities, disabled children and people with learning disabilities to apply learning to practice contexts. This certificate course also builds key skills in information and communication technologies (ICT), information literacy and reflective writing.
