Specialist Certificate in Advanced Social Work
Where will this take me?
Who the course is for
This course is for qualified social workers at varying stages of their careers, including recent graduates, established practitioners and those seeking to advance their careers or move into a new field of professional practice.
According to projections, the health and community services sector will grow more rapidly than any other in the next five years.** This will create demand for high-calibre health, community services and social workers, a trend that is echoed internationally. The Advanced Social Work course allows you to take advantage of this demand.
As a graduate of this course, you will have developed the ability to engage in a critical reflection of your own practice and be able to lead effectively in this sector, with the capabilities and skills to build important connections between people and organisations.
Graduates may progress to a range of other graduate coursework programs, including the Master of Advanced Social Work.
