About this Event

The D2N2 Social Work Teaching Partnership has been in place since Autumn 2016. Since then our 11 partner organisations have worked hard to ensure that the social work workforce across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire is equipped and prepared for the future.

This event will provide you with:

• a national picture of social work today

• a review of the Partnership’s achievements and aspirations in a wider national context

• opportunities to discuss, with peers, the work being done around retention, resilience, practice education, and standards

We would welcome attendance from social work students, social work practitioners, practice educators, ASYE mentors, managers, academics, and service users and carers.
