Communities of Practice

Each Community of Practice (CoP) will bring together social workers from, policy, practice, and education from their respective fields to share knowledge and experience, receive support from peers and BASW NI.

They will also be an opportunity to highlight issues that you want BASW NI to action on your behalf.

There are similar groups meeting in the RoI, Scotland, Wales and England and we aim to connect with them on shared issues regularly.

The CoP will last for one hour and attendance will provide you with 3 PIP credits.

We invite suggestions on topics for discussion from our members and/or presentations that will be of interest to your colleagues. We want this to be a forum for learning and raising matters that BASW NI can take forward on your behalf.

Please forward any suggestions to
