social worker talking to clients

Social workers support, empower and advocate for individuals, families, whānau, and communities. Wintec provides both the qualifications and practical skills needed to work successfully as a social worker in New Zealand.

The Bachelor of Social Work combines theoretical knowledge with hands-on learning. Students will gain the knowledge base, skills, and attributes required to practice in a variety of social work fields such as schools, hospitals, community groups or government organisations.

Applicants who don’t meet the entry requirements to the degree programme, can apply to study Te Ara Pūtake My Academic Pathway (Social Service pathway) to help prepare them for enrolment in the programme.
