Work based learning is a core element of social work education and learning comprising 50% of the degree programme for undergraduate and postgraduate students in Northern Ireland. Practice based learning is a central tenet in contemporary social work practice. In an increasingly competitive labour market embedding employment strategies within the curriculum is essential for students, providing an opportunity to showcase their graduate qualities and for the University securing external partnerships with social work employers.
