Supporting Best Practice through the Post Qualifying Awards – A series of PQ Information Seminars for managers across London .
The Post Qualifying Framework is designed to develop well-rounded practitioners, confident about working in inter professional and inter-agency contexts with the capacity to respond to, and effect, change.
Skills for Care London and the CWDC have organised a series of PQ seminars across London for managers to explore the benefits of supporting staff to undertake a Post Qualifying Award. A number of universities will be contributing their thoughts about how post qualifying education developments are addressing the policy drivers underpinning workforce reform including the Personalisation Agenda, Transforming Adult Social Care, Every Child Matters and the Social Work Taskforce. The seminars are being facilitated by Shirley Ayres – Communications Consultant, publisher of Be Inspired an online resource for social work and formerly Chief Officer GLPQ.
Managers are invited to attend one of these unique seminars to find out how the Post Qualifying Awards:
o Develops and enhances social work values, knowledge and skills
o Broadens knowledge of social policy and legislation
o Increases the use of evidence based practice
o Encourages more effective networking and collaboration with colleagues from different backgrounds
o Enhances the sharing of knowledge and skills within teams
o Confirms the status of the consultant social worker
All attendees will receive a copy of the new Skills for Care London and CWDC publication “Making Sense of the Post Qualifying Awards – A Brief Guide for London Employers” .
