The School of Social Policy is committed to spanning the divide between academia and practice, and to applying its research through teaching, publications, consultancy and policy advice.
As part of this Mission, the School runs what is believed to be the oldest, continually running social work training course in the country, which celebrated its centenary in 2008.
There are two Departments which make up the School of Social Policy:

The Health Services Management Centre is based at Park House, located close to the heart of the campus.
