The Social Work Toolkit helps students develop the knowledge, core skills and confidence to succeed on their course and placements. Our range of resources, including videos, case studies, book chapters and expert opinion articles are available on or off campus.

"...the toolkit is an invaluable resource...a godsend to any social worker, particularly students who are starting their first placement..." – Student, Manchester Metropolitan University
