Event Details

The first year after qualifying is widely recognised as being extremely important for social workers. This event will discuss the proposal to introduce a supported year for newly qualified social workers in Scotland


To support the profession in achieving and maintaining the relevant knowledge and skills required to practice effectively, the Scottish Social Services Council, has recently reviewed social work education in Scotland. One of the Review’s recommendations is the introduction of a mandatory supported first year in practice for Newly Qualified Social Workers (NQSWs). The Scottish Government is currently considering this recommendation.

 

We are seeking your views on the issues around a supported year, the benefits, enablers, barriers, priorities. This event will explore these issues and builds on a recent survey issued by Scottish Government which was widely distributed to all registered Social Workers and students, to Local Authority HR Directors, Directors of Social Work and Chief Social Work Officers, to IJB Chief Officers and to a range of representative organisations.

 

This event offers an important opportunity to discuss the findings of the survey. Your views will influence what happens next, helping to inform further work on improving support for Newly Qualified Social Workers.   The day also offers the opportunity to network and hear about existing good practice in supporting Newly Qualified Social Workers.
