children's social work, Sir Martin Narey, social work education
I agree with everything that Narely said but as a college student going onto university to do social work I am unsure about the specialised courses. I am passionate and interested in children’s social work but what’s to say that in 10/20 years time I won’t want to work with adults?
If someone did a specialised course in children’s social work would this mean they would have less chance of working with adults in the long run?
Narey wants children’s social workers who are taught nothing else but how to challenge what he perceives as poor parenting and how to evidence abuse and neglect so children can be removed and placed with nice middle class families. This is obvious from his previous rantings about baby ‘P’ and the Edlington case. He has clearly hand picked some individuals to talk to so he could produce a report which backed up his own pre-conceived ideas.
