ACCESS TO SOCIAL WORK - SWAP
This course is designed for adults who have had a significant gap in formal education (a minimum of 3-5 years, depending upon the highest level of academic qualifications you’ve attained so far). You may check your eligibility by contacting SWAPWest directly via www.scottishwideraccess.org or by emailing Amy Angus at firstname.lastname@example.org
Candidates who wish to refresh their knowledge before interview may find it useful to review English and Maths at SCQF Level 5 (National 5, Intermediate 2, or equivalent) using BBC Bitesize or similar relevant resources.
What you need to qualify for entry...
No formal academic qualifications are required to apply for this course; however, you must have good written and spoken communication skills.
If English is not your first language, you must be able to show evidence that you've completed ESOL level 6 (Higher) or an equivalent qualification.
If your initial application is successful, you will be required to complete a web form containing a few key questions, as part of the recruitment process.
Course topics may include:
- Communications (Higher)
- Literature and National 5 Maths among other subjects.
In the Preparation for Higher Education unit, students will also develop ICT skills, study skills and research skills. Candidates will be assessed using essays, class-based exams, group discussions and presentations.
Full Time – 21 hours (3.5 days) per week.
Although you will be in college 21 hours per week, your classes may be timetabled any days Monday to Friday and any hours between 9am-5pm. An exact timetable will be provided at enrolment.
One Academic Year: August - June.
Our college holidays generally track with the Glasgow school holidays, so in addition to public holidays, you can expect some breaks in October, December, and March/April.
If you wish to study on a part-time basis you should provide information about this in the personal statement you include with your application, and at interview.
