|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Arts, Society & Education
The subject explores the social and political context of social work practice; the
nature of contemporary social policy formulation and the forces that influence and
shape its development. This subject provides a series of frameworks and analytical
tools for understanding the social policy-making process, including formulation, implementation
and evaluation. Case studies are used to develop a critical understanding of differing
responses to social policy issues and problems.
- critically analyse the social policy formulation, implementation and evaluation process
within the organisational, social and practice context;
- demonstrate and critically reflect on the social policy-making process;
- synthesise knowledge of key concepts, values, principles, competing models and choices
appropriate to a critical analysis of social needs and social policy.
