The West Midlands Social Work Teaching Partnership is pleased to announce it has secured funding from the Department for Education and Department for Health and Social Care from April 2020 to March 2021.
This will enable the Partnership to continue to achieve excellence in social work education and professional practice through a research-led and evidence based approach.
The partnership has set four principal aims to help realise its vision and continued transformation:
Raise the standard and consistency for entrants onto social work programmes, ensuring all students demonstrate the skills and knowledge, attributes, values and resilience to thrive in social work.
Strengthen the links between academia and practice to support the development of research, theory and practice.
Enhance pre and post-qualifying social work curriculum to reflect contemporary research and practice.
Ensure students undertake high quality statutory placement and ASYE programmes which develops their knowledge, skills and experience to practice as Newly Qualified Social Workers.
