Sataff teaching on the MSW/Diploma in Social Work include full-time and part-time lecturers, tutors, teaching fellows, practice co-ordinators and secretaries. Sessional teachers and tutors also make a contribution to teaching as do staff from other subject areas. Besides their general social work background, teaching staff have specialist knowledge in particular areas of policy and practice; for example, work with children and families, older people, mental health, and criminal justice.
Practitioners and managers, service users and carers, researchers and trainers from the statutory, voluntary and independent sectors contribute to the teaching, drawing on their substantial specialist knowledge in ways which complement the expertise within the University.
