The Open University offers an open and work-based learning route to the BA Honours degree in Social Work and registration with the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) on successful completion. The Programme has been approved by the SSSC.
This programme is targeted primarily to staff who are working in social care agencies and are supported by their employer, including students employed on traineeship contracts.
We also offer a limited number of places on the social work degree programme to independent students.
