Step Up To Social Work

Social Work is such a rewarding career, and the Step Up To Social Work Programme helps you to become a social worker by earning while you learn! This is a postgraduate programme, so you will need to have either a minimum 2:1 level 6 degree qualification, for example an honours degree or a graduate certificate (can be in any subject), or a minimum 2:2 honours degree plus a postgraduate qualification (level 7 or above). Give it a go!
