Hi!!! Any advice would be much appreciated and greatly received....I'm due to start my final year on a BA social work course. I'm starting to think about next year and would love to work with children and families and eventually in child protection. That said, my experience is limited. I am due to start a placement in that area, which is great.I feel my knowledge is limited and think I would really benefit from doing an MA in social work next year, giving me even more experience (2 further placements) and greater knowledge and understanding.
However, whenever I bring this up with people, specifically qualified social workers and professionals, I get the impression that it's unusual for someone who is a qualified social worker (as I hope to be next year) to do an MA in social work.
Has anyone done both the BA and MA in social work?!?! Thank you in Advance :-)
What do they suggest instead? What do your tutors suggest? Have you looked at any job specs and seen what is expected? Is work exprience the way to go?
