About the course

This three-year degree is distinctive in being fully focused on employability. By undertaking observations in schools and other alternative provision, you will be able to apply your theoretical knowledge in practical environments. It responds to the crucial need for professionals working with groups and individuals in social, educational and administrative settings to have a broad knowledge and understanding of social inclusion and the issues this presents to contemporary society. Flexible in its make-up, this programme also allows you to take specialist professional pathways such as a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) or a MA in Social Work.

Hull is a pioneer in delivering innovative learning aligned with current practice. You will engage in debates on contemporary issues and explore experiential learning through student-led projects. Recent pilot schemes have seen students receive mobile devices, reflecting the integration of technology in real-world settings. Such focus on digital and practical skills set you apart from those studying elsewhere who may receive a more theoretical emphasis in their learning. Your Job prospects are further enhanced through study in different contexts, such as outdoor learning, museums and alternative provision, whilst you can gain practical experience through schemes such as Guided Sight training.
