Practitioner research is less common in social work than in other helping professions. Are we missing a trick? Social work research means developing the social work knowledge base by undertaking primary and secondary research on social work issues in order to solve practical problems in social work practice or social policy. Research by frontline social work practitioners can lead the transformation agenda and make the issues we – and the people we work with – face every day much more visible to policy makers and commissioners.
The West Midlands Teaching Partnership are pleased to announce a Practitioner Research Fund to support and enable practitioners to undertake research.
In addition, the Teaching Partnership will also provide funding to support practitioners to undertake PhDs and Professional Doctorates. For more information and to access the application process please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
