Want a varied and rewarding profession centred on people?

Social work is a varied and rewarding profession centred on people. It offers careers working with children, young people and adults, supporting families, care leavers and older people, as well as those with mental health issues, learning difficulties or physical disabilities

It is well-known as one of the most rewarding professions available. Unlike some other rewarding careers, becoming a social worker requires ongoing interaction with the youth and adults you help. This allows you to form bonds with other people, making the help you give that much more rewarding.

The University of Bolton’s BA (Hons) Social Work course focuses on helping you learn to use your professional judgement and build relationships, both with the individuals and communities you serve as well as with colleagues from other professions and services.

Our passionate and knowledgeable lecturers will support you to develop the sound knowledge of Social Work theory, models, legislation, policy, ethics and interventions that will underpin your professional decision-making.

Students will cover areas such as the impact of injustice, demography, and social inequality, as well as safeguarding and the signs of harm, abuse, neglect and exploitation.

We will guide you as you gain key skills, values and behaviours including professional curiosity, inter-personal and communication skills, initiative, leadership, research and critical reflection, partnership working, self-care and resilience, record keeping, and workload management.

Graduate prospects include a variety of careers; the most popular roles are:

  • Adult guidance
  • Counselling
  • Mediator
  • Probation
  • Youth work
  • Mental health
  • Substance misuse
  • Social housing
  • Learning support
  • Consultancy
