About the Level 4 Using the Law in Social Care Certificate
A good knowledge of the law is necessary if you want to be a social worker. Ethics and guidelines are at the centre of social care practice. This distance learning course has been designed to educate students about the legislation involved in social work. What’s more is that it can be studied from the comfort of your own home.
The course is split over seven interesting and educational modules. Each of these units examines a different element of social care law. If you study with Stonebridge College you will study everything from the Children’s Act and young offenders to mental health and community care. The course should take around 210 hours to complete but we recommend you talk all the time you need.

This home learning course is useful for aspiring or current social workers who want to improve or refresh their legal knowledge. It will also be beneficial for those working in other positions in the social care sector.
