Newly Qualified Social Workers: A Practice Guide to the Assessed and Supported Year in Employment
Keen, S., Brown, K., Parker, Jonathan., Gray, I. and Galpin, D. [eds]
The first year of practice can be a particularly challenging time for newly-qualified social workers. This book is therefore essential reading not only for NQSWs entering the workplace but for students on qualifying programmes who wish to develop their skills beyond graduation. This new edition draws upon recommendations from the Social Work Reform Board and includes material on the Assessed Year in Practice and how new practitioners working in both Adults and Children and Families settings can get the very best out of supervision.
