Social work Online Courses
West London College offer an Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Work). This course is a general door opener as there are many routes and career options available with this qualification. It can lead to studying Social Work, Teaching, Community working and the Charity sector, after you have gone on to successfully complete a degree at University.
Social Work itself is a profession centred around people. Social workers help families improve the outcomes in their lives. So if you have good communications skills, a willingness to help people and a desire to ‘make a difference’ then the Social Work pathway could be the obvious choice.
The Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Work) acts as a stepping stone to studying a variety of related subjects at University, for those who have currently not got the right qualifications. It is always important to check (with your destination university) to ensure the qualification you are choosing to study will definitely meet their entry criteria.
