World Social Work Day 2018!

World Social Work Day will be on the 20th March 2018. It is the key day in the year that social workers worldwide stand together to celebrate the achievements of the profession and take the theme message into their communities, workplaces and to their governments to raise awareness of the social work contributions and need for further action.

Bridge over Troubled Water

Bridge over Troubled Water: working together to ensure that social work students are fit to practice.

SYTP staff presented a poster at the University of Sheffield’s recent Engaged Learning Conference. The poster, created by Jane Laing (University of Sheffield), Jess McEwen (SYTP) and Fiona Addison (Sheffield City Council), outlines SYTP’s approach to working collaboratively in order to enhance the quality of the SYTP’s qualifying social work programme. The poster is available to download here: Bridge over Troubled Water

Lincolnshire Inclusion Festival

Tuesday 27th June, Belton Woods Hotel, Grantham, NG32 2LN

THIS FESTIVAL IS A CELEBRATION OF THE WORK, PHILOSOPHIES AND STRATEGIES OF PRACTITIONERS WHO BELIEVE FULLY IN THE CONCEPT OF INCLUSION. DELEGATES WILL BE TREATED TO A DIVERSE RANGE OF SPEAKERS AND WORKSHOPS TO INSPIRE AND INFORM THEIR PRACTICE.

More than ever before, there is a need in education to recognise the unique and diverse needs of our learners to enable them to be included in the education system.

With a high stakes accountability culture, this agenda could be relegated to the side-lines. Speakers such as Dave Whitaker, Executive Principal of Springwell Learning Community in Barnsley (@davewhitaker246) will bring both moral purpose and authentic experience to share with attendees.

And… because we believe that working in education is the best job in the world, we have laid on lovely food, stalls at break time and great people to talk to. This is a festival of celebration.
