Return to Social Work: Learning Materials

Module I: Returning to social work

There have been some significant changes to social work over recent years, and this is an exciting time to be returning to the profession. Module 1 will help to orientate you around some of the key changes, and navigate through the range of issues that a returning social worker will need to consider; including registration with the HCPC, preparing a CV and the steps to take when applying for jobs.

The exercises in this module will encourage you to reflect on your past social work professional experience, identify transferable skills gained during your time away from the profession and start to help you identify strengths and ongoing development needs.
