Our values govern our collective approach to improving social work education and practice:-
We hear the voice of lived experience, and act on it.
We are empowered through effective partnership working.
We create leaders through example.
We strive for excellence in education and practice
We are informed by evidence.
We have formed four key objectives to support our strategic vision:-
To create an integrated approach to professional education in social work grounded on a commitment to inter-agency collaboration.
Shared strategic planning and commitment to improvement.
Contribute to the development of a ‘learning culture’ to support students from a novice to an accountable practitioner, demonstrating the appropriate skills, reinforced by both knowledge and research, having a meaningful impact on service users and their carers.
Ensure newly qualified social workers begin careers with aspiration and appetite, evidenced by progression, achievement, and longevity in the profession.
