We hear time and again that there are not enough high quality practice placements available for social work students – and this not only damages some people’s future career prospects, but could also put vulnerable people at risk.
So Community Care and Unison would like to invite final year students and newly qualified social workers (within two years of qualifying) to take part in our anonymous survey, to tell us about your experiences of practice learning. Were you well supported during your first and final placements? Did you feel ready for practice at the end? What impact did your experiences have on your ability to find a position as a qualified social worker?
The survey takes only minutes to complete and the results, which will be published on Community Care at the end of this month, will be used to push for better practice learning provision in the future.
Closing date: 23 October
