The Student & NQSW Group gives a voice to students and newly qualified social workers. This involves: peer advice/support through quarterly meetings held via Microsoft Teams; various continuous professional development opportunities and ways to shape BASW’s priorities. Students and NQSW’s are the future of social work and so it is important this group shares knowledge and ideas with other groups and wider social work groups to assist forging a positive future for social work and social workers.
The group have delivered a number of successful webinars on getting your first social work role. The webinars have included a panel of experts, students and newly qualified social workers taking questions. See our new Top Tips for Social Work Students for advice and support to help you get through your studies.
