Teaching, learning and assessment methods
The teaching and learning will be delivered both online and face to face and will enable you to progressively develop your knowledge, understanding and skills against the qualification learning outcomes. Digital and information literacy will be developed to support your acquisition of skills appropriate for postgraduate level.
The assessment strategy for the MA in Social Work is informed by HE expectations of the achievement of appropriate learning outcomes for students studying at this level, and the requirements of Social Work England (SWE) and the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC).
There are two main types of assessment: continuous assessment and different examinable components, which include the 2 assessed practice learning opportunities and the dissertation.
You will be required to demonstrate minimum levels of practice competency during this qualification in order to progress. Failure to meet the required standards may result in your removal from the module and/or qualification.
