Social Work students qualify early joining the frontline
Final year Social Work students from Queen’s have qualified early so they can enter the workforce and join the frontline during the coronavirus pandemic.
It is not compulsory for the students to qualify early, however 103 final year Social Work students from the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work opted to fast-track their studies in order to support social work service delivery, and health and social care services more widely during the pandemic.
Social workers and the wider social care workforce play a vital role alongside their colleagues in medicine, nursing and health supporting, caring for and protecting those in need at this time.
