The SSSC Council met on 16 June 2015 and considered the report on the first phase of the Review of Social Work Education.
The Council noted the progress made over the past year and the positive collaborations and contributions from partners across the sector in identifying key themes for taking forward this year.
The existing Review of Social Work Education strategic group met on 24 June to explore how best to broaden participation and involvement as we work towards developing recommendations for improving the design and delivery of the social work degree qualifying programmes.
Our three workstreams will focus on:
- gathering additional evidence
- developing a collective e understanding of what a more integrated model of practice based learning will look like
- exploring options and appraising models for resourcing a future social work degree programme.
An update on the final report of the review group will be available by the beginning of August.
