About Advanced Practice (Vulnerable Adults) at Bournemouth University

This part-time course offers a continuing professional development (CPD) route which is linked to career progression but retains the emphasis on advanced social work practice with vulnerable adults. The programme will meet the needs of social workers already practicing at a senior level who wish to progress to advanced level and meet the expectations to practice in complex situations, exercising high-quality professional judgements.

Students will be exposed to a variety of learning and teaching methods, including lectures, discussion groups and guided independent study. Participants will bring significant experience, knowledge and skills to the programme. Unit guides and reading materials are designed to allow you to build on and develop their existing knowledge base and maximise opportunities. Core texts will provide base-line knowledge for students to debate, though wider and diverse reading will be encouraged.
