IT Sligo has broken new ground in becoming the first Institute of Technology to secure approval for a Masters in Social Work.

It is planned that the new MA in Social Work, which is a two-year, full-time course, will start in September 2018 and will support the development of graduates into a sector that is suffering a skills shortage.

The Masters was developed in direct response to the urgent social work crisis in Ireland. Waiting lists for social worker interventions exist across all service areas including: children and young people; care of the elderly and the disability sector.
