What we do
Ensure the highest calibre of social work students with the attributes, competencies and passion needed to thrive in the profession are recruited to our academic programmes.
Develop a curriculum that aligns with local need and is grounded not only in research and the CSWs’ KSS, but also in practice.
Readiness for practice
Give students the experience and support they need to ensure they are ready to practice within our region as Newly Qualified Social Workers.
Academics in practice
Ensure practice across our region is consistently informed by theory and research and that academics’ teaching is equally informed by practice.
Regional progression and development
Create regional progression pathways and CPD opportunities capable of attracting and retaining the best and brightest social workers in the UK.
