Accredited CPD courses
Developing Together Teaching Partnership wants Social Workers to enjoy their jobs, feel supported and have opportunities to progress and specialise in their chosen area of practice. We are committed to developing your social work skills and experience, through embracing a culture of continuous learning.
Our CPD programme aims to:
- Provide development opportunities at different stages during your Social Worker career;
- Offer a range of accredited options to strengthen professional practice skills, practice learning capabilities and support research informed practice;
- Offer accredited training for new or aspiring social work managers.
Our HEI partner Kingston University delivers a programme of credit bearing modules that can be taken standalone, to support flexible and modular professional development, or combined to earn a post-graduate certificate (PgCert) (60 credits), post-graduate diploma (PgDip) (120 credits), or a masters (MA) (180 credits). See the image before for details of the key modules offered – you can click on each module to bring up a flyer that includes application window, teaching dates and module cost:
All staff working for primary partner agencies receive a significant discount on the cost of each module offered (this is outlined in the respective flyers).
“I wanted to personally thank you and all the teaching staff that I have come across so far, for the immense support offered to me throughout the duration of the Practice Educators level 2 course.
The tutorials have been informative and engaging, written feedback to any work submitted by myself, have received prompt feedback from you, in addition to the course documentation on the student Canvas being up to date and fairly easy to navigate-which has been really helpful.
Although I had been fairly nervous about returning to adult study, and combining this with my paid employment, I feel that the support that you and your department have given to me, have made the whole process seem far more do-able than I initially thought that it could be.
Whilst I am already a social work manager, this course has really enabled me to be more reflective in my own practice, therefore I would really recommend this course to any social work professional wishing to enhance their knowledge and practice whilst getting into the line-management/ supervision of less experienced staff.
Thank you once again”
