Social Work Options

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all,
    I have a BA Hons 2:1 in Performing Arts, I then did a PGCE and tried my hand at teaching. Have realised that it isn't for me and that I would rather get in to Social Work. I don't think I can get another student loan so really am looking for the pre funded route. I am planning to apply to the next Step Up cohort but need some kind of back up plan. I have thought about FrontLine but I don't think I have enough UCAS points. Are there any other courses that anyone knows of? Think Ahead sounds good as a last resort.

    I think you first should get some work experience and work out if this is for you. You don't want to spend time and money doing something you may not want to take forward in the future.
