Social care in Scotland is increasingly multidisciplinary and community focused – requiring a skilled, adaptable workforce to deliver high quality services. This diploma will deepen your understanding of social care and social work, and develop the knowledge and skills you need to support vulnerable adults and children effectively in multiple settings. It places a strong emphasis on working across professional boundaries, with service users firmly at the centre.
There are no formal entry requirements to study this diploma, but it would be to your advantage to work in or have access to a social care agency – for example, through voluntary work.
Computer and internet access required.
