Research indicates that social workers who have been qualified for between 2 and 5 years are at the greatest risk of leaving the profession. This course will examine the theory behind the research and look at practical ways in which to approach the complexities that qualified social workers are facing. Each session will focus on a different element of social work practice, taking into consideration; organisational and cultural pressures; ethical dilemmas from a personal and professional perspectives; the challenge and reward of continuous development and the responsibility associated with being an “experienced social worker”.

Re-ignite your love for the social work role and profession...
