Stepping Stones special edition - Successful management with new ways of working in social work training

Part of BASW's Taught Skills Development Programme

An interactive session uniquely designed and delivered by Siobhan Maclean and delivered on MS Teams. Suitable for delegates nationwide.

Social work has changed more in the last two years than ever before and yet management advice has largely remined static.

This session will explore the impact of new ways of working on social work and social care teams.

Using the What? why? how? framework the session will explore, what is the impact of new ways of working? Why do we need to adapt our management style and methods? How can we support workers and maintain high standards of practice in these new ways of working?
