Senior Social Workers
The role of a Senior Social Worker
As a Senior Social Worker you will manage a caseload with a high level of complexity and act in a mentoring and consultative role to less experienced social works. Through working with other staff within the service and partner agencies you will ensure we are able to provide support and protection for children and young people in need and at risk.
Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS)
Practice educators at this stage will be able to supervise, teach and assess social work degree students up to but not including the final assessment prior to qualification. At this stage they may contribute to the last placement but not take full responsibility for assessment or act as the practice educator on a day-to-day basis.
