Social work makes a real difference to people's lives. It’s an academic, practice-based discipline that promotes social change, social cohesion, and the empowerment and liberation of people. Work-based placements are an integral part of social work degree programmes.
At Hoople we work with social care organisations across Herefordshire’s voluntary and statutory services to provide high quality work based placements for the Universities of Worcester and Gloucestershire, and the Heart of Worcestershire College. We are part of the West Midlands' Step Up to Social Work initiative, a graduate fast track programme into children’s social work and are involved in the development of the new social work degree apprenticeships.
This section hosts a number of social work resources for practice educators and students.
