Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Work)

The UK needs passionate and dedicated social workers to help drive society towards a brighter future. Every day, professional care workers make a difference to the lives of vulnerable people and offer individuals the support they need to take control of their own situations. If you believe you have the ability to stand up for underprivileged groups in society and fight for social change, our Access to HE Diploma (Social Work) could be perfect for you.

Before you register as a practicing social worker, you will first need an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in social work. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need A-levels to get into university. In fact, our Access to HE Diploma (Social Work) has been specially designed to help people who do not have traditional qualifications to meet university entry requirements.

You can train to become a social worker at any age. In fact, it is often thought that older people and career changers make for excellent social workers as they have more life experience to draw from. We understand that returning to study after an extended period can be a little daunting. This is why our Access to HE Diploma (Social Work), which is delivered by Dimensions Training Solutions, has been tailored specifically to ease our students back into the academic world.

What’s more is that our Access to HE Diploma (Social Work) can be started at any time of the year. All of our materials can be accessed online, too. This unique structure gives our students the flexibility they need to pursue their goals. It also means that they can fit their studies around their other commitments and responsibilities.
