The University of Bolton’s MSc Social Care, Health and Wellbeing course can help you take a step up on the career ladder if you are an ambitious care worker looking to move into leadership or social care management jobs. Postgraduate training can be a fantastic way to upskill.
As key workers, it’s vital to have the best support when it comes to training and personal development. Here are just a handful of ways it can further your career:
Develop leadership skills
Our course provides focused social worker training to foster the social care sector leaders of the future. We help students hone their critical reflection, analysis and evaluation skills, while supporting their ability to determine the impact of professional interventions in social care and health services.
Together with teaching students the principles of academic research and investigation, our programme can prepare you for a range of jobs in senior management.
Enjoy professional and personal development
Not only do our tutors work with you to establish a suitable career path, but they will also focus modules to encourage personal growth. It’s important to reflect on your own practice and remain proactive in improving yourself if you want to offer the best care to clients and service users.
We rank in Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020), as well as in the Top 50 UK Universities (The Guardian University League Tables 2021), so you’ll be able to learn from the best and reach your potential.
Gain your master’s qualification
As well as being able to earn a master’s degree, you’ll be able to achieve your career ambitions with the help of our dedicated Employability Team, who will be on hand once you graduate. We have an excellent record of working with NHS, social care and community-based services. This means we can align social worker training to fit employer and service user needs, increasing your employability with relevant skills.
