Social Work in the South returns on the 23 September 2020 – a free recruitment and professional development event, hosted by Hampshire County Council, in partnership with Community Care. This year, in order to meet with the requirements placed on events by the coronavirus outbreak, this event will be happening online and virtually for the first time.
Social Work in the South seeks to bring together both training and qualified children’s social workers, to share and discuss the latest innovative approaches being developed in social care practice. This year, the event will focus on providing social workers with a full day of continuous professional development (CPD), something which is more important now than ever. There will also be recruitment panels with local authorities from all over the south, whereby training, newly qualified and experienced social workers can hear from employers about their processes, vacancies and the recruitment market as a whole.
The event will comprise individual speaker sessions from industry experts and providers, which social workers are welcome to join throughout the day, as they please. Each session can be individually booked onto via the Social Work in the South website.
Among our insightful and inspirational speakers will be Community Care Inform, Social Work England, Gillian Ruch and more. All our speakers will be touching on different trends and topics relevant to the sector, including relationship based practice, the importance of CPD and how to carry out online learning successfully. All of this will be sandwiched between the recruitment panel sessions with authorities, where you can find out more about the work they are doing and any opportunities available.
If you are a training or qualified children’s social worker, we would be very pleased to welcome you to join us on the 23 September, for what is sure to be a brilliant, if not slightly different, event.
