Question Mid career switch - social worker

Hi, I am interested in joining the social service sector as a social worker. Would like to ask about the following:
- I understand that qualifications are required which I currently do not have as my degree is in other fields. Is there any way to join the sector besides applying for the PCP when it opens at the end of the year?
- to those working as a social worker out there, what do you all spend most of your time in a day doing?

Thanks a lot for any helpful advice in advance.

Don't think you need much qualifications, they take mostly anyone they can get

Besides PCP which offers you a paid education and job, you can self pay for social work courses in the universities. SGUS programmes promise one that they can be social work assistants and associates upon graduation from their programmes. Not a social worker but you can chat with me at [email protected]

I also had a career switch due to coronavirus in the lockdowns, which essentially led to me being furloughed. I'm not saying this is the ideal thing to do, but the good thing was that the company that hired me as a social worker had a great stream of pieces of training available for me, so the transition to this new job was much easier than one could have expected. I am also trying to make some simple pieces of training for the newbies that will be joining the company, and https://www.docsie.io/blog/training_manual_template/ has been extremely helpful.
