Teaching and Learning

At SWECW, the focus of our teaching is the creation of the next generation of front-line workers in Education, Social Work, Occupational Therapy and other key professions to ensure community well-being.

At all levels of study, you can expect to be taught by experts who are engaged in active research to further our understanding of education and social/health care. This leading to real world impact in the form of more effective professionals, improved services and ultimately improved quality of life. 

On many of our programmes you will have an opportunity to gain direct experience from working within services. From this you will very quickly become an active part of our ongoing commitment to excellence at a local, regional, national and global level.
