Closing date for registrations: 26 February 12.00am

Throughout this interactive day students take part in a range of
practice scenarios to explore the varied role of the social worker.
They find out what social workers do, and the range of knowledge and skills necessary for effective practice.

Students will understand how social workers aim to improve people’s lives by helping with social and interpersonal difficulties, promote human rights and wellbeing, and protect children and adults with support needs.

From helping families under pressure to stay together, to
supporting someone with mental health problems, social work
is a varied, demanding and often emotional career, but it’s also very rewarding.

The event has multiple benefits for your students interested in studying at higher education level by developing their knowledge and understanding of:

> subject specific information pertaining to their current studies
> an insight into the subject at higher education level
> expectations of studying at higher education level
> an opportunity to try the subject before deciding on study pathways at university
> reflective experience to include in their UCAS application personal statement
