Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Work)

Many go into a career in social work because they want to "make a difference". They want to work with all kinds of people and help them improve their lives.

Our Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Work) is provided by Dimensions Training Solutions. It is the perfect opportunity for you to gain the necessary skills to progress onto a relevant degree course.

You must be registered first to be a practicing social worker. To be registered you must have a social work degree. You'll be eligible to become registered with a UK regulator after you've completed your degree. Regulators are around to protect the public. They ensure that only qualified and competent practitioners are allowed to practice as social workers.

If you've never studied A levels then our Access to Higher Education Diplomas are ideal if you wish to progress to university. The social work pathway is extremely popular and is suitable for those who've been out of full time education for some time and wish to go to university.

The course has no upper age limit and can be studied online. You can start an Access to Higher Education Diploma at anytime in the year. Distance learning allows you to be really flexible with your studies. Fit the online access course around your other commitments and responsibilities, such as work and family.
