Scotland Survey On Supported Employment For NQSWrs.
Introduction of a supported year for Newly Qualified Social Workers - Sector Survey
The Scottish Social Services Council, working with partners across the sector, has recently reviewed social work education in Scotland. One of the recommendations is that Scotland should introduce a mandatory, supported first year in practice for Newly Qualified Social Workers (NQSWs). The Scottish Government are considering this recommendation and are now seeking to find out the sector’s views. A decision will then be made about undertaking further work on what a supported year might look like and how this could be delivered and resourced.
We are seeking views from organisations and individuals with an interest in the education of social workers. You can pass this link on to others, noting that we are distributing the link widely including to all registered social workers and social work students. Your views can make a difference - the views of the sector will influence what happens next, so please complete the survey.
The survey will take ~5 minutes to complete. You can take part in the survey by clicking on the link below:
