This module, which is designed for qualified social workers, will have you thinking of the ‘bigger picture’.
You’ll learn about international perspectives, for example, on the sustainability of social work and the impact of structures and language when doing social work. We’ll embrace experiences of race and identity, with a focus for outcomes that transparently demonstrate our commitment to diversity and promoting inclusion. Sessions are delivered by experts in their field and with a focus for research and contemporary practice contexts.
We'll focus on wider socio-political influences to consider research and promote learning that informs change in practice. The course content consists of sessions by different lecturers to offer different perspectives related to their research areas. Example themes include Sustainability, Race Equality, Practice and Theories.
Qualified social workers registered with Social Work England and social care professionals.
This course is suitable for continuing professional development across the spectrum of adult/child services – of newly qualified and experienced social workers – and in the context of meeting professional, ethical standards.
