Guidelines for Mentors in BASW January 17th 2012

The mentor scheme in BASW is a very specific one and has been established to support NQSWs and those about to qualify who have not been able to find employment as a social worker. The 2010 and 2011 cohort of graduates started their degrees when the employment situation was very different. There are various estimates that between a quarter and half of NQSWs are not able to find a job in social work, although the exact numbers is not known.
