Counselling, Social Work and Human Services

Welcome to the Counselling, Social Work and Human Services programmes at the Faculty of Education and Social Work.

 

Graduates from our programmes may work in services for particular communities with health or welfare needs, and in services set up to support and help disabled people or those living with mental illness.

"Human services" is an inclusive term covering government and non-government social services, and includes social work, disability support, youth work, community work, counselling and community work.

A unifying concept in this area is that of empowerment, empowering people of integrity, who possess excellent skills and a strong ethical base to, in turn, empower those who face challenges to reach their potential and lead fulfilling lives.

The staff in the School of Counselling, Social Work and Human Services, together with professionals in our fiels, look forward to working with you and supporting you through your study with us.

'E raka te mauī, e raka te katau'
'A community can use all the skills of its people'
