Information for Apprentices

Are you working in a social care role in adults or children’s services, mental health, disability or youth offending? Have you thought about your future development and career? Have you discussed this with your line manager or other colleagues? Perhaps you would like to become a qualified and registered social worker, but you cannot afford to take time out or meet the costs to do a conventional degree programme? If your answer to these questions is yes, then you may be interested in our new degree apprenticeship, our BA (Hons) Social Work.

This is an exciting new way of gaining a BA (Hons) Social Work, offering eligibility to apply for entry to the professional Social Work Register, whilst working for an employer (usually a local authority adult or children’s social care department) and being paid a salary. Your employer pays a levy to the government and the cost of the degree apprenticeship comes out of this, enabling you to thrive in the workplace. You'll be a full-time employee learning skills on the job for around 80% of your time, the other 20% enjoying all the fantastic opportunities at Warwick.

Student Stories

"It's a course that makes me think about things from different perspectives and analyse certain things, so I feel that I've grown in my professional life, but also in my personal life. Now I don't seem to take things at face value and start to question everything in a way that can be constructive."

Emma Goodfellow, current student
