Social Work

Across Te Pūkenga network, we currently deliver 11 different Bachelor of Social Work programmes. Te Pūkenga is working collaboratively to develop one programme that works for all. Right now, Aotearoa needs more qualified and skilled Social Workers than ever before. If we are to achieve successful outcomes for our ākonga (learners), the needs of our Māori and Pacific hapori (communities) must be included and considered in any programme redesign that we undertake.

Reference groups with representatives across all areas have come together to co-design the philosophies and ngā mātāpono (guiding concepts) for each programme. This work is now being used to inform the philosophies and principles for the programmes. The next step will be the development of our graduate profile statements and the programme structure, which will then be followed by writing the curriculum documentation.

In early 2022 we will undertake a process of consultation with our partners to gain feedback on the final draft curriculum documentation for the social work programme.
