A Career in Social Work
We are delighted to be able to share this informative careers resource from the Western Health and Social Care Trust.
In October 2021 the Learning Development and Governance Team in the Western Health and Social Care Trust held a half day workshop, on Zoom, for Year 12 to Year 14 about Social Work as a professional career choice. The workshop shared information about what social work is, the route to qualification including application.
Students had the opportunity to talk with different Social Workers and ask questions about their journey into Social Work and where they practice. They could not record the event due to privacy issues, but to support other students to access the content of the workshop, they have recorded with the social workers who were there, the information and questions asked.
For students considering a career in social work, there are a selection of superb resources to enable students to explore the career.
