Newly Qualified Social Workers: The Challenges and The Joys
An invitation for newly qualified members to come along and catch up with their peers and share experiences.
BASW NI has had contact with members undertaking their Assessed Year of Employment. While the majority of our conversations have higlighted a positive experience of their first year in practice, there are some issues which need further discussion. As your Professional Body we work to ensure that all newly qualified social workers have restricted caseloads, regular and meaningful supervision and access to ongoing learning opportunities. We are concerned to hear that this might not be happening.
This meeting is an opportunity for you to meet with us, as a peer group, to have a discussion on how your experience of AYE has been thus far and what BASW NI can do to further support you.
