Newly-Qualified Social Workers : A Practice Guide to the Assessed and Supported Year in Employment Paperback / softback
Edited by Steven Keen, Jonathan Parker, Keith Brown, Di Galpin
Part of the Post-Qualifying Social Work Practice Series series
Paperback / softback
The first year of practice can be a particularly daunting and challenging time for newly-qualified social workers (NQSWs).
This fully revised and updated book directly addresses the crucial transition period between finishing off the social work degree and managing the first years of practice. It offers down to earth, practical guidance on applying for your first post and managing your work load in the first few years.
From useful sections on the Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE), supervision, dealing with conflict, court skills, report writing, and team work to what professionalism actually looks like in practice, this book will throw a life belt to not only NQSWs entering the workplace but for students on qualifying programmes who wish to develop their skills beyond graduation.
