Routes into Social Work with Suffolk
To become a social worker you will need to study a three-year undergraduate degree or a two-year postgraduate degree in social work that is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
Entry requirements will vary between course providers so please check the HCPC website for approved providers to check their requirements.
If you already have a degree, you could do a two-year postgraduate Master’s degree in social work.
When you apply for social work training, you should ideally already have some paid or voluntary experience in a social work or care setting. Community Action Suffolk is an organisation co-ordinating voluntary work: http://www.communityactionsuffolk.org.uk/
