Leading higher standards in training and support for professional practice
We are excited to have been awarded over £1million to launch a new Teaching Partnership from the Minister of Education with Norfolk County Council, the University of East Anglia and the University of Suffolk.
Not only will this Partnership develop integrated systems for professional development and learning across our operational and educational institutions. It will also increase involvement of front line practitioners and managers in admissions, curriculum design and teaching - achieved through a genuinely collaborative approach where social work teaching and practice is informed by sound academic research; where academics are in touch with local practice; and where the social work workforce places a key and active role in the development and delivery of social work education.
The partnership will equip social workers with the knowledge and skills needed to work effectively and creatively with children, young people, families, and adults in a way that will have a measurable impact on improving outcomes and is important in developing, supporting, and retaining social workers in their highly critical role in Child Protection and Family Support Services.
