Survey of Newly Qualified Social Workers (NQSWs) spring 2014

Following on from a survey to our members last year, the BASW England Professional Development group conducted a further survey to see if the situation had changed one year on. Last year there was a strong indication that the Assessed and Supported Year of Employment (ASYE) was patchy in availability and varied in content and newly qualified social workers were struggling to get on the scheme especially if they were not employed by a Local Authority.

This year’s result, although smaller in terms of the number of respondents (55 compared to last year’s 182), show a marked improvement with more members being aware of the scheme and far more involved from all areas of social work.
