You need a degree in Social Work from a certified school.

A good source of information would apparently be the General Social Care Council (GSCC) website ( or phone 0845 070 0630) at the link below.
Also see the BASW (British Association of Social Workers) web page.Source(s): http://www.gscc.org.uk/page/118/Social+work+degree... http://www.basw.co.uk/social-work-careers/
