Event description

Description

The D2N2 Teaching Partnership has a commitment to improve the quality of social work training, and to enhance opportunities for ongoing learning and career development. Whilst this is, in part, addressed through the enhancement of existing social work qualification courses, and the provision of appropriate CPD packages for our social work practitioners – we cannot underestimate the importance of our social work managers. They are the foundation stones for good practice, and their challenge – besides the more day-to-day realities of juggling budgets, absences, resources, and office-space – is to inspire, support, mentor, and lead their team. It’s a big ask, and it takes a unique mixture of skills to be able to perform confidently and competently in such a role.

This event will give social work managers a chance to meet with their peers, and those involved in workforce development, to discuss some of the current issues that are relevant to their professional development and the challenges they face as practice managers.

Workshops will include:

    • The Knowledge & Skills Statements (KSS) for Practice Leaders and Supervisors – an opportunity for you to self-evaluate your skills and expertise, and your understanding of the role of manager within the KSS framework

    • Leading from the Front – exploring how best to build, lead and develop your social work team

    • Decision Making – this workshop will focus on the role of decision making in the context of social work practice; how to make effective decisions, and how to support their implementation

There is free parking available on-site at this venue

Lunch is not provided, but there is a cafeteria on site should you wish to purchase a lunch at the end of the event
