The Bachelor of Social Work is a professionally recognised course that prepares you to pursue a career as a social worker, where you will work with people to achieve changes to improve their lives. You will guide and support the individual client, family, or community to meet their goals.
You will do this by providing support, counselling, case management, and/or community development. You will be an advocate for social change to create a more socially just society. You will walk beside those who are vulnerable, identifying their strengths and capacity for making change.
With the Bachelor Social Work, you will gain the knowledge and skills required to work with individuals, families, groups and communities. You will develop practical skills to work effectively and safely with those in crisis, vulnerable or impacted by poverty and social disadvantage.
Key areas of your coursework include multi-disciplinary practice, cross-cultural practice and working in virtual contexts and with practical skills based on the entry/application requirements of organisations.
